When 15-year-old Lesley Arfin wrote in her diary about Cynthia Karacas making her feel 'retarded', the world was a dark, lonely place. When she discovered heroin things got even worse. Arfn's present-day updates show readers that no matter how heavy it all seemed back then, it's all pretty irrelevant in the face of adulthood.

About Lesley Arfin
Lesley Arfin was born in Long Island, New York, in 1978. After a few botched attemps at academia she settled on writing, or, more specifically, writing a regular "Dear Diary" column for "Vice Magazine "beginning in 2002. The column was an instant success, giving Vice a much needed "chick angle," and launching Arfin's writing carreer. She has since gone on to write for a variety of other magazines including" Jane," "Nylon," and" i-D." "Dear Diary" is her first book.
