Wouldn’t you love to read what’s in this diary?
In 1976, I read Dracula which is a book that is completely told through diary entries. It impressed me so much that at age 13 I decided it was time I marked the drama of my young life down in print. I’ve carried this torn up red book, that I bought at Stewart’s 5&10 on 63rd street that summer, around with me everywhere I’ve lived. In fact, about ten years ago I did an auto-biographical piece using the entries and singing themes from the TV shows of the day. If you read these regularly you’ll see that mostly this is a fascinating look at what a non-typical 13 year old with much time and few friends watched.
