A Book of One's Own: People and Their Diaries
by Thomas Mallon
-bought this for 50 cents at a book sale because I thought it looked like a good bedtime put-me-to-sleep book. I was right. A steady rhythm of discussing a diarist for 3-4 paragraphs, then a segue, then another diarist, then another segue, and so on, and then at the end of a chapter there would be paragraph that would take us to the next chapter. At the end he declares WNP Barbellion the all-time champ.
