Unusual and intriguing articles about diaries or diarists in the news
Steinbeck, George Eliot, Peary, Cripps, Wittgenstein, a Turkish coup, and a Philippine assassination - subjects of articles in April. Diarists and diaries are the main focus of every story. I always refer to original sources, provide links, and try to quote actual diary texts. Labels allow selection of articles by country, subject and date. There are now over 150 articles on The Diary Junction Blog and the site is nearly one year old - I'd love Metafilter members to take a look. Recent story links . . .
