The Assassin's Cloak:An Anthology of the World's Greatest Diarists
A remarkably wide-ranging anthology - laid out, day by day, like a diary - The Assassin's Cloak has been universally praised.
"The Assassin's Cloak gathers brief and often wonderful entries by poets and philosophers, businessmen and barons for each day of the year....This book is for the expert and the dilettante, for the coffee table and the reference shalf."
