The Diary of a Lost Girl

The Diary of a Lost Girl

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,997 |Likes:
Published by Thomas Gladysz
The 1929 Louise Brooks film, "Diary of a Lost Girl," is based on a controversial and bestselling book first published in Germany in 1905. Though little known today, the book was a literary sensation at the beginning of the 20th century. Was it – as many believed – the real-life diary of a young woman forced by circumstance into a life of prostitution? Or a sensational and clever fake, one of the first novels of its kind?

This controversial and once censored work inspired a sequel, a parody, a play, a score of imitators, and two silent films. It was also translated into 14 languages, and sold more than 1,200,000 copies - ranking it among the bestselling books of its time. This new edition of the original English language translation brings this important book back into print in the United States after more than 100 years. It includes an introduction by Thomas Gladysz, Director of the Louise Brooks Society, detailing the book's remarkable history and relationship to the acclaimed 1929 film. This special "Louise Brooks Edition" also includes more than three dozen illustrations. More at www.pandorasbox.com/diary.html

"In today's parlance this would be called a movie tie-in edition, but that seems a rather glib way to describe yet another privately published work that reveals an enormous amount of research and passion." -- Leonard Maltin

"An important contribution to film history. . . . a volume of uncommon merit." -- Richard Buller, author of A Beautiful Fairy Tale: The Life of Actress Lois Moran

"Thomas Gladysz is the leading authority on all matters pertaining to the legendary Louise Brooks. We owe him a debt of gratitude for bringing the groundbreaking novel, The Diary of a Lost Girl, back from obscurity." -- Lon Davis, author of Silent Lives

The "poignant story of a great-hearted girl who kept her soul alive amidst all the mire that surrounded her poor body." -- Hall Caine (1907)

"There are many readers, however, who find it very shocking, and Mr. Bram Stoker, the advocate of book censoring . . . would ban it promptly." -- New York Times (1907)

"The saddest of modern books." -- Nelson Evening Mail (1909)

"The fact that one German critic asserted the impossibility of a woman herself immune from vice having written such a book, is proof that besides truth of matter there was compelling art in Margarete Böhme's book." -- Percival Pollard (1909)
