Virginia Woolf turned to her diary as to an intimate friend, to whom she could freely and spontaneously confide her thoughts on public events or the joys and trials of domestic life. Between 1st January 1915 and her death in 1941 she regularly recorded her thoughts with unfailing grace, courage, honesty and wit. The result is one of the greatest diaries in the English language.

The career of Mikhail Bulgakov, the author of Master and Margarita – now regarded as one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century literature – was characterized by a constant and largely unsuccessful struggle against state censorship. This suppression did not only apply to his art: in 1926 his personal diary was seized by the authorities. From then on he confined his thoughts to letters to his friends and family, as well as to public figures such as Stalin and his fellow Soviet writer Gorky, while also encouraging his wife Yelena to keep a diary, with many entries influenced or even dictated by him. This ample selection from the diaries and letters of the Bulgakovs, mostly translated for the first time into English, provides an insightful glimpse into a fascinating period of Russian history and literature, telling the tragic tale of the fate of an artist under a totalitarian regime.

Joseph Cornell is a legendary yet living presence in American art. His famous boxes, with their ineffably perfect choice of elements -- the stuffed birds, the buttons and toys, the fragments of old theatrical posters, the poignant allusions to the worlds of the nineteenth-century ballet and opera -- are some of the most recognizable signatures in all of twentieth-century art.From this extended selection of his diaries and other written material, Cornell emerges as a deeply dedicated and conscious artist, though one whose personality was every bit as unusual as many had perceived. Cornell used his diaries as he used his boxes, to capture and preserve his passing feelings, his momentary urges, and his anguished hesitations. He was an incessant and brilliant recorder of his thoughts as he considered his art or traveled to New York to haunt the antiquarian bookstores and shops where he collected material for his boxes.We see here his deep immersion in French symbolist poetry and his intense interest in his surrealist contemporaries. We see also his plangent yearning for les sylphides, the fairies of the ballet world who seemed to be reincarnated for him in the form of waitresses, dancers, actresses, and shop girls in his own world. Cornell corresponded with an astonishing range of people including Parker Tyler, Marianne Moore, Tony Curtis, Robert Motherwell, and Susan Sontag. His letters were often sent in the form of collages, and several of them are reproduced in this book.

A dedicated diarist, White compiled a detailed account of colonial life in the Hunter Valley away from its hub in Sydney. In the privacy of his diary, where ‘an opinion could be given without incurring censure’, commentaries on other colonials could be harsh, while casting himself as imposed upon by family and friends. A nervous public speaker he could, when aroused, write an abrasive letter or stir public controversy. He was fond of reading the classics, filled notebooks with quotations and quoted them in his diaries. Feeling isolated in the antipodes he followed closely news of world events. Perhaps he can best be thought of as a thwarted intellectual living in a colonial backwater. Elected to the Legislative Assembly in 1858, he chaired an inquiry with significant outcomes for land settlement. He was, said a contemporary, not only a historian, and an eyewitness, but “a prominent actor in the parts he recorded”.

To all appearances Carl Nielsens life was the embodiment of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy-tale. Born in a village on Denmarks central island of Funen, he rose to become his countrys unchallenged national composer and a vital renewing force in the twentieth-century symphonic tradition. His music spans the eras of Nordic late-Romanticism and international modernism he showed his first symphony to Brahms, and his sixth and last was composed at the same time as Shostakovichs first. Nielsens letters, few of which have been previously translated, enshrine his charming yet fiery personality as vividly as his music. They take us from intense adolescent infatuation, through encounters with new music and art on extended European journeys, and the ups-and-downs of professional life as a violinist and conductor at Copenhagens Royal Theatre. They tell the story of his repeated attempts at international breakthrough, of his struggles to articulate his musical philosophy, of his carefully honed contributions to the Danish national song tradition, of the marital crisis that accompanied his greatest symphonic masterpieces, and of his continued creative explorations as he strove to remain true to his ideals in a changing world.

The Siege of Krishnapur, the second of Farrell's Empire Trilogy, won the Booker Prize in 1973, and it was selected as one of only six previous winners to compete in the 2008 international Best of Booker competition. The strength of American interest in Farrell's books is underlined by the inclusion of all three Trilogy novels in the Classics imprint of the New York Review of Books. Troubles won the Lost Man Booker Prize in 2010. Many of these selected letters are written to women whom Jim Farrell loved and whom he inadvertently hurt. His ambition to be a great writer in an age of minimal author's earnings ruled out the expense of marriage and fatherhood, so self-sufficiency was his answer. Books Ireland has astutely portrayed him as "a mystery wrapped in an enigma, a man who wanted solitude and yet did not want it, wanted love but feared commitment, reached out again and again but, possibly through fear of rejection, was always the first to cut the cord." But Farrell's kindness, deft humor and gift for friendship reached across rejection, which must account for why so many such letters were kept. Funny, teasing, anxious and ambitious, these previously unpublished letters to a wide range of friends give the reader a glimpse of this private man. Ranging from childhood to the day before his death, Farrell's distinctive letters have the impact of autobiography.

A round-the-world bicycle tour with one of the most original artists of our day. Urban bicycling has become more popular than ever as recession-strapped, climate-conscious city dwellers reinvent basic transportation.

From Buenos Aires to Berlin, he meets a range of people both famous and ordinary, shares his thoughts on art, fashion, music, globalization, and the ways that many places are becoming more bike-friendly. Bicycle Diaries is an adventure on two wheels conveyed with humor, curiosity, and humanity.
