This charming book satisfies my new-found love for both diaries and New York City. Laid out with entries beginning on Janurary 1st, each day features the musings of the famous and the unknown. They paint a picture not just of that dynamic, electric city, but of a restless society always on the brink of change. Simone de Beauvoir's entries are particularly absorbing.
