The Inman Diary - A Public & Private Confession 2 V Set A Public and Private Confession INMAN, Ac

[First ed.]. Illustrated with black/white photographs. With medical report on Arthur Inman and index (41 pp.). Inman (1895-1963), a sensitive would-be poet from a moneyed family, virtually withdrew from normal existence after a breakdown in early manhood. With necessities seen to by wife and staff, he concentrated on his immense diary, which filled 155 volumes at his death. He kept in touch by reading and through ``talkers'' paid to discuss their lives in his darkened sickroom (females were required to go considerably beyond talking). Their stories, too, became part of the diary, abridged here to a hefty sampling of Inman's peculiar mind and habits. An unusual mix of social history and case study. A "nonfiction novel". Original dark blue cloth with red labels and gilt title on spine, red ribbon, in grey slipcase with tan illustrated paper wrapper. The paper wrapper is a little "schmutzig", the books are in normal used condition. Reference: // Diaries / Biography / American Poets / 20th century
