A Life Enhancer. "The Diaries of Miles Franklin" by Paul Brunton (ed). [review]
Primarily, Paul Brunton’s source is the enormous archive of letters, manuscripts, reviews, notebooks and diaries that Franklin left to the Mitchell Library. Brunton has mined this archive with great sensitivity and fine scholarship. This volume has a balanced introduction placing the entries in the context of Franklin’s life, explanatory footnotes through the text, a glossary of names, a bibliography of Franklin’s published works, a list of manuscript sources, an index and photographs. An occasional editorial note is inserted tactfully as a biographical signpost.
