Picked this up to read with a book group. Saw a video of the author being interviewed about the book. Liked the interview much more than the book itself. Found it difficult to enjoy reading the diary entries -- perhaps a portion of my disconnect is the British/American language barrier? Any which way, I found the book to be tedious except when the author would reveal a previously unknown detail about the writer of the diaries. Also his occasional philosophical comments on the diaries were quite pithy.
With immense dedication Masters diligently took us inside the life of a diarist after finding discarded notebooks in a dumpster. "Many of the books were rotting along...as if I caught them secretly returning to trees." The diarist was quite an oddity, writing but not reading or even understanding what she wrote. I was caught up with the search for the author and was wonderfully surprised at Masters discovery and what it revealed.
