@caffo Just read about her and she seems a fascinating person - tragic and triumphant in equal measure.

A good reminder to keep a diary

@dualhammers yes, her diaries are a well-written warning about how idealizing someone can cause a lifetime of pain. I need to read it again--it's been a while.

@caffo Yeah... I need to read them, as I have self-imposed the same pain for similar reasons. Is there only a single volume?

@dualhammers I have them in two volumes. Mirage and Trapeze, if I remember correctly.
