ANNE FRANK: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife by Francine Prose

Francine Prose, in ANNE FRANK: THE BOOK, THE LIFE, THE AFTERLIFE, takes a comprehensive look at an individual who, more than six decades after her death, remains an iconic figure all over the world. Prose considers THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK to be “the greatest book ever written about a thirteen-year-old girl.” After rereading the diary as an adult, she concludes that it is not merely “the innocent and spontaneous outpourings of a teenager,” but rather “a consciously crafted work of literature,” one that Anne revised thoroughly, hoping to reach a wide audience someday.
