Book Description

23 July 2010
The Louise Brooks film, DIARY OF A LOST GIRL, is based on a controversial & bestselling book first published in Germany in 1905. Though little known today, it was a literary sensation at the beginning of the 20th century. Was it - as many believed - the real-life diary of a young woman forced by circumstance into a life of prostitution? Or a sensational and clever fake, one of the first novels of its kind? This contested work inspired a sequel, a play, a parody, a score of imitators, and two silent films. It was also translated into 14 languages, and sold more than 1,200,000 copies. This new edition of the original English language translation brings this important book back into print after more than a century. It includes an introduction by Thomas Gladysz, Director of the Louise Brooks Society, detailing the book's remarkable history and relationship to the 1929 film. This special "Louise Brooks Edition" also includes more than three dozen vintage illustrations. More info at www.pandorasbox.com/diary.html

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescuing Provocative Literature from Obscurity 13 July 2010
By Lon Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Historian Thomas Gladysz has done the silent film community an interesting service: He has made available the original English translation of Margaret Bohme's novel, The Diary of a Lost Girl. To fans of the beautiful actress Louise Brooks, this is a significant contribution indeed. The novel would go on to become the basis of Louise's torrid 1929 German film, which was directed by G.W. Pabst. What makes this new book so appealing is the way in which Mr. Gladysz has presented the vintage material. Featuring a scholarly introduction and numerous, wonderfully reproduced stills and rare advertisements, it is a pleasure to behold. It is also obviously a labor of love. For many years now, Mr. Gladysz has been the director of the Louise Brooks Society.

3.0 out of 5 stars good 17 Mar 2013
By Marred Elisabeth Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it's a good read on a rainy afternoon, a plane ride or in quick snippets. Great literature it is not, and the translation is not the smoothest.
