I m not sure whether to compare this book to Boswell s Life of Samuel Johnson or Anthony Bourdain s 248 entertaining round the world visits eating food in unlikely spots In any event it is 638 pages I am glad to finish This journal by Pla was written in 1918 1919 while he was in law school and after He also went back to the journal in his 60s and rewrote parts before publication In 1918the first year the university is closed due to influenza and he writes about each person in his small hometown of Palafrugell Spain You re immediately struck by how much spare time people had a century ago Pla would spend all day in a cafe or walking by the sea with friendsmost days When he went back to the university in Barcelona he seems to do the same You do learn how people talk how they think their daily lives and habits College was boring in spots bad professors things ran amuck money was scarce but still he spent most days on the town and eventually he graduates but then can t afford the diploma He decides to become a journalist instead of a lawyer and the book ends as he gets his first good job in Paris Apparently a classic since so few writers have written in the Catalonian language

It was a fun exercising reading this after Montaigne s Essays Pla admittedly and unsurprisingly is an admirer of his but as to how well he read Montaigne is definitely the issue of this text Montaigne s Essays were an autobiography by other means and stylistically the inform Pla s autojournalistic aims in filling this notebook with his observations of the world and his experiences in literary consumption Here Montaigne s scholasticism and analytical insight are replaced with Pla s eually powerful eye for detail and ear for dialogue It seems if he learnt anything from Montaigne it was style and his conservatism completely missing the skepticism central to Montaigne s work Where Montaigne seeks to know himself and actualise virtue Pla assumes virtue as in doing so his strengths become his weakness he reveals himself as an aesthete easily seduced by surface representation He cannot analyse the world but he can reproduce it in fine detail An excellent trait for a petite bourgeois journalist
