With immense dedication Masters diligently took us inside the life of a diarist after finding discarded notebooks in a dumpster. "Many of the books were rotting along...as if I caught them secretly returning to trees." The diarist was quite an oddity, writing but not reading or even understanding what she wrote. I was caught up with the search for the author and was wonderfully surprised at Masters discovery and what it revealed.
