What's the Use of Books? Knowledge, Authenticity, and "A Young Girl's Diary."
Swindells, Julia
Women's History Review, v5 n1 p55-66 1996
Explores the hostile reception following the publication of "A Young Girl's Diary" in England in 1921. The diary, consisting of a Viennese teenager's humorous and irreverent observations, faced charges of immorality and uncertain authorship. Postulates an alternative reading focusing on the young girl's negotiations concerning knowledge and social relations. (MJP)
