A 1977 Diary

Wouldn’t you love to read what’s in this diary?


Well, you can! Its owner has transcribed all the entries into a blog:

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.

  1. This is fascinating. I have spent hours today reading through that blog. Thanks so much for posting this!

  2. I wrote to you a few months ago about diaries that look like that. They seem to have dropped off the face of the earth.
