Edith's Diary

Published by Diogenes as Ediths Tagebuch
Original Title: Edith's Diary
The diary of a mother who writes about the things that move her: her husband who adores her, and her son Cliffie who is doing brilliantly at the elite Princeton University where the girls and the companies all want him. And Edith herself who is a successful journalist. In fact, however, none of it is true! What Edith Howland writes about in her diary are daydreams, fantasies about an ideal world where there is no war, illness, separation, young drug dealers or loneliness.
