THE RAGGED WEAVE OF YESTERDAY
Andy Christopher Miller
When an old mountaineering friend fell gravely ill, Andy Miller found himself looking for solace in the oldest of a set of personal diaries that he had faithfully maintained for fifty years. Would their youthful adventures be recorded? What shared memories had he forgotten? Was there an anecdote or two that might help lift his stricken friend?
Long-forgotten rock climbs and hitchhiking adventures tumbled out from the pages as he found himself immersed in the experimentation and freedom of his 1960s youth.
So began a journey not only into his own life story but into the role of diaries in our lives and, ultimately, into the very nature of human memory and the sense of the self.
