Краткое описание

The Diaries of Nella Last: Writing in War and Peace.

"I can never understand how the scribbles of such an ordinary person ... can possibly have value," wrote Nella Last in her diary on September 2, 1949. More than 60 years later, thousands of people have read and enjoyed three volumes of her vivid and moving diaries, written during World War II and its aftermath as part of the Mass Observation project (and the basis for British Academy Award–winning film Housewife 49 starring Victoria Wood). As David Kynaston said on Radio 4, "My gut feeling is that Nella will come to be seen as one of the major 20th-century English diarists." This edition is a single-volume selection of the best of Last's prolific and often humorous chronicles, including a good amount of previously unpublished material from the war years. "Whatever her mood, Nella Last has the quality shared by all great diarists: of making her readers feel that however vast the differences between her life and ours, they are easily outweighed by the shared experiences of love and loss, disappointment and hope, that she describes with such artless humanity."—Daily Mail (London)"An excellent correlative to the mantra 'everyone has a novel in them.' Some people are natural diarists and Nella is one of the best.... She also used literary language in an entirely naturalistic way."—Sunday Herald (Scotland)
