Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of a girl's funniest diary entries from 12 to 25 years old. She updates each entry by tracking down the people involved and asking awkward questions like, "Do you remember when I tried to beat you up?" Sometimes old friends apologize. Sometimes they become new enemies. No matter who she talks to about the days we all discovered sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll, one thing becomes abundantly clear: Boys are totally immature.

"Here's your chance to have all the benefits of a tortured adolescence without the shitty childhood. Congradulations!"

—Sarah Silverman

About the Author

Lesley Arfin was born in Long Island, New York, in 1978. After a few botched attemps at academia she settled on writing, or, more specifically, writing a regular "Dear Diary" column for Vice Magazine beginning in 2002. The column was an instant success, giving Vice a much needed "chick angle," and launching Arfin's writing carreer. She has since gone on to write for a variety of other magazines including Jane, Nylon, and i-D. Dear Diary is her first book.

Martin, June 10, 2007 (view all comments by Martin)
In Dear Diary, Arfin attacks her teenage diaries with intense scrutiny and self reflection. She's her own ex-heroin addict older sister, and if that weren't enough, she dutifully hunts down her old friends and enemies for a fresh perspective on her own life. Examining the series of events that led to her spiralling heroin addiction and unlikely recovery, she pulls no punches on her younger selves. Although I never was a heroin addict, much of this book resonated with my own experiences with the drama of being young and self absorbed.
