Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. P. I. Browne on 29 Mar. 2012
Format: Paperback
Sylvia Townsend Warner was perhaps the best diarist and letter writer of the twentieth century. The diaries are enlivened by an intelligence and subtlety that you rarely find, and are models of wit and shy humor. The qualities that unfortunately only rarely surface in her fiction are there in absolute abundance in her private writing, and one comes away from them with a sense of one's own life having been enriched.
