Inman Apartment

"Delving into Inman's diary is like being able to
eavesdrop on a conversation in a priest's confessional
or psychotherapist's office."

NEW YORK TIMES

"The Inman Diary, an extraordinary record of
how a man turned not part but the whole of his life
into an artifact."

LOS ANGELES TIMES

"The Inman Diary discloses aspects of American
life only sporadically touched upon in
contemporary fiction."

TIME

"Hypergraphia, the study of a marriage full of
conflict, adoration, and co-dependency that worked in
an odd way."

THE BOSTON HERALD

"Bizarre, compulsive, eccentric, neurotic,
peculiar, amusing, sensitive, whimsical,
only some of the words that describe Arthur Inman."

IMAGINE MAGAZINE

"Arthur Inman's peanut-gallery view of America
through two world wars and the nuclear age
rolls past with majestic sweep and urgency."

WASHINGTON POST

the longest recorded diary in the English language."

WGBH RADIO

"The Inman Diary,
one of the most bizarre literary endeavors
of the 20th century."

THE BOSTON GLOBE

"Inman's diary is a striking, amusing,
appalling and all but endless thesaurus

Hollywood tackles the unbridled musings of
Boston's Arthur Crew Inman."

Before there was Facebook, Before there was Social Networking, There was Arthur Inman

“The Diarist” is the strange but true story of the notorious Boston diarist Arthur Crew Inman.
One of the most obsessive humans ever to put pen to paper, Inman was born in Atlanta in 1895 to wealthy but neglectful parents.
After being sent away for years to boarding and military schools, he moved north and became a resident of Boston from 1917 until his death in 1963.
Simultaneously at war with and hugely fascinated by the march of time, Inman straddled the uneasy divide between the Victorian and the Modern eras.
The hub of his life, his inner and his outer world, was apartment #604 in Garrison Hall. This crumbling edifice, still standing at #8 Garrison Street, Back Bay, housed a man who spent 60 years of his life chronicling the flow of history through his fractured but highly intuitive lens.
Starting at the age of 8, he wrote what is now acknowledged as one of the world’s longest and most fascinating diaries.
