Journal-keeping and memoirs

This comment from a friend of mine, who wrote in a recent letter to me: “I’ve been reading Christopher Pratt’s memoir titled Ordinary Things. It’s very good. Apparently he kept journals and diaries throughout his life and he has put the best of them together in this engaging book. I dream of doing the same sort of thing myself since I, too, have kept journals for nearly 50 years.”

I’ve included below  a  link to a review in The Chronicle Herald, at the top of the year. This, along with my friend’s recommendation, makes me want to read Ordinary Things.
