This is an interesting critical look at Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. Prose analyzes and compares Frank's original diary with her revisions and her father Otto's edits. I found this book really interesting at times - and it's certainly well-researched and written.

I think, though, that it's a bit too critical and exacting for, say, me. Me who hasn't read the original diary since sophomore year of high school. And me sitting on the couch on a Sunday afternoon while my husband watches football, anyway. However, it would be great for me for anyone taking a trip to Holland or Germany or who has a special interest in the diary.
