Woolf's diaries of 1915-1941, abridged to a fifth of their original published size, include portraits of T. S. Eliot and Katherine Mansfield; comments on sales and reviews of her books; pleasant musings and acerbic remarks. According to PW , ``The diaries here may appeal to a larger audience, not least because each year represented is prefaced by a wonderfully succinct overview.'' (Nov.)
