The autobiographical content will fascinate every devoted reader of the Anne books. But the
Montgomery journals are especially interesting because they provide a unique social history
and the privilege of viewing closely the life of a remarkable woman. Comprising perhaps the
most vivid and detailed memoir in Canadian letters, the journals will join Anne of Green
Gables in ensuring Montgomery's lasting place in Canadian literature.
"The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery...have given me enormous pleasure."
Carol Shields, The Boston Globe
""These are journals so enlightening, so full of wisdom, humor, philosophy and
tragedy that they are worth a winter's reading and reflection."
"Montgomery's journals provide not only poignant and entertaining reading,
but a fine source of social, medical and literary history as well."
Atlantic Books Today
"We owe Professors Rubio and Waterston a very large debt of gratitude for their patient work on these volumes;
they are a record of life-writing unique in our literature and outstanding in any company.
Clara Thomas, Literary Review of Canada
