Reviews

"A remarkable record of a woman's reconciliation of art, motherhood, memoires of childhood, and present-day demands."--Anne Morrow Lindbergh
"Daybook is a rare gift, illuminating and nourishing, a journal to read and re-read."--May Sarton
"A natural and graceful writer...Truitt's self-examination is unflinching and, at every moment, possessed of the inevitable dignity that attends a genuine commitment to telling the truth about oneself."--Art in America
"One of the great artists of our time, it's a treat to be allowed into Anne Truitt's mind as she contemplates the ups and downs of being an artist, mother and friend."--Brie Larson
