“…an intimate and immensely readable book” – Dr Phil Stringer, Dept. of Psychology, University College London
THE RAGGED WEAVE OF YESTERDAY – Andy Christopher Miller
As the New Year approaches, many people will begin keeping a daily diary. Why do they do this? What do they put in them? And who, if anybody, do they think will be interested in them? Andy Miller has kept a diary for over 50 years and when an old mountaineering friend fell gravely ill he returned to them to search for details of their youthful adventures together. But he found that diaries can raise more questions and dilemmas than they solve!
This book will be enjoyed by anybody who has ever kept a diary, considered writing a memoir/autobiography or even just tried to understand the different strands of their own life. Sections on topics as diverse as hitchhiking, rock climbing, friendships, cult reading from the period and progressive education movements, will appeal to various other groups of readers. It will also reawaken memories for people who lived through the huge social, political and economic changes of the 1960s and 1970s.
