    DescriptionGlimpses into the diaries of some of America's finest writers and most interesting people, drawn from one of the most popular sections of the hip on-line magazine Slate .. Each week the editors of Slate , one of the first and best on-line literary magazines, ask a different person to keep a diary. The Slate Diaries is a selection of some of the best of those diaries. Contributors include distinguished writers such as Mary Gordon, Amy Bloom, David Sedaris, Robert Pinsky, Greil Marcus, Claire Messud, Alison Lurie, and Stewart O'Nan; and well-known artists, entrepreneurs, and media people including author and magazine editor Dave Eggers; Bill Gates; film critic Roger Ebert; book editor Dan Menaker; Benazir Bhutto; pop star Beck; and director Whit Stillman. But some of the most interesting diaries come from people you may not yet know, among them a venture capitalist; a school nurse; a NYPD detective; a sorority girl; and a bounty hunter. In an entertaining introduction, Slate editor Michael Kinsley writes about diaries, our secrets, and why we like to peer into other lives.Everyone likes to read someone else's diary--so there's something for everyone in this endlessly browsable, entertaining compendium of fascinating looks into a diverse range of hearts and minds.
