Review: A DIARY WITHOUT DATES by Enid Bagnold

Review: A DIARY WITHOUT DATES by Enid Bagnold

Fleur Fisher in her world recently read and reviewed A Diary Without Dates by Enid Bagnold for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

‘Diary Without Dates’ is her account of the time she spent in one, unnamed, hospital. It’s not a diary in the usually expected form. There are, as the title suggests, no dates and no real clues to the passage of time; it is a simple, ongoing account of her experience; almost a stream of consciousness.

And so the background is a little fuzzy, but that is all to the good as it brings the details, the observations into sharp focus.
