review 1: I was first introduced to Francine Prose's work by reading the novel The Blue Angel. This prompted me to read several other works of hers and continue to grow my to-read list with her work. This book was just as a pleasure to read as the other novels. She always has a good sens...

review 1: For all the words that have been spent on Anne Frank and her iconic diary in the decades since the Holocaust, only a few have addressed Anne the Writer, and this may the first time there have been enough to make up a book. Much has been written about Anne the Symbol and, later, A...

review 1: Biographical only as necessary, this unique book takes Anne Frank's diary seriously as a literary work, telling about her life, her creative process and masterpiece, and the subsequent play, film, and use in schools. After all my reading about Anne Frank, I already was aware of m...
