What originally drew me to the book was the fact that it was the basis for the 1929 German film of the same name. That silent film stars Louise Brooks. She's an obsession of mine, as anyone who knows me is all too well aware. I'm always going on about her ... And I'm always looking into some facet of her life and career. I was curious about what seemed to me an otherwise obscure book. Why did the great German director G.W. Pabst make it into a film? What would he have seen in it?The article can be found at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/thomas-gladysz/a-lost-girl-a-fake-diary-_b_694263.html

New Huffington Post article: why I published Diary of a Lost Girl
I've just posted a new article on the Huffington Post discussing why I self-(re)published my Louise Brooks edition of The Diary of a Lost Girl. . . .
Then and now: Tagebuch einer Verlorenen (1907 edition) and The Diary of a Lost Girl (2010 edition).
