Anne Frank's Diary

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Francine Prose discusses Anne Frank's diary, and argues that it is as much a deliberate work of art as a historical record and memoir. In Anne Frank: The Book, the Life, the Afterlife she examines the book's meaning and impact.

I think many of the people who say what a great writer Anne Frank "would have been" if she'd survived are thinking more of the great things she would have written. Now that I've heard this segment, the loss of what she might have written feels even deeper.

For that matter, how do you explain Jim Carroll and "The Basketball Diaries"?

Do your listeners know that NYC houses the US partner organization to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam right here in Soho on 38 Crosby Street. It provides exhibitions on AF and her times and other related materials, as well as public and indepth educational programming going into the schools (such as the one Ms. Prose visited in Queens) dealing on issues of intolerance, creative writing, always using the diary as a piece of literature)?
