THE FIX

A NOTABLE WOMAN: THE ROMANTIC JOURNALS OF JEAN LUCEY PRATT

BOOK OF THE MONTH

edited by Simon Garfield (Canongate, £20)

Jean Lucey Pratt began keeping a diary in 1925, aged 15, and continued to write her thoughts and feelings until her death in 1986. The 45 exercise books (edited by Simon Garfield) are full of observations about changing society, attitudes to women in the workplace and living through World War 2, but it’s the emotional revelations that sit at the true heart of this book.

Jean charts schoolgirl crushes with a lovely earnestness – she’s smitten with her gym teacher – and candidly describes the awkwardness and sorrows of her grown-up love life, which are fraught with unwieldy, unrequited feelings. Gossipy, funny and spirited, Jean’s diaries are fresh and wonderfully frank.
