About this book
Subtitled, "The Remarkable Diaries Of Five Ordinary People". Continues Simon Garfield's successful formula of interweaving five ordinary lives from the Mass-Observation archive begun with "Our Hidden Lives".
Of all the accounts written about the Second World War, none are more compelling than the personal diaries of those who lived through it. This title tells the story of five everyday folk, who, living on the brink of chaos, recorded privately on paper their intimate hopes and fears.
