Product Overview

The classic text of the diary Anne Frank kept during the two years she and her family hid from the Nazis in an Amsterdam attic is a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit.

"The new English version of 'The Diary of a Young Girl' is based on a Dutch edition of 1991 that incorporated, for the first time, certain vitriolic comments by Anne about her fellow-tenants of the Secret Annex and reflections on her own nascent sexuality (including one fleeting impulse of adolescent lesbianism). Otto Frank, in the early aftermath of the war, had seen fit to delete these passages. The result of their inclusion is a more believable self-representation of Anne as a sometimes sharp-tongued, touchy, lively girl. The new version is less sugar, more vinegar. And this is enhanced in Susan Massotty's translation, which, at least to judge by how it reads as English, nicely conveys the colloquial vivacity and spunkiness of the young diarist."
"I find myself laying off the hot-off-the-press things I was obliged to read and returning to books I have read before (Anne Frank's 'Diary', for instance)..."
