Welcome to the Don’t Let The Sun Go Down Book Club. This is the first and only planned entry of the Club. In this entry I will be discussing Dawn: Winter Journal by Phil Elverum and The Journals of Sylvia Plath.
This winter I went back-and-froth between two books: Dawn: Winter Journal by Phil Elverum and The Journals of Sylvia Plath. Each of these books are unedited journal entries by creative people; Elverum being the musician behind The Microphones and Mount Eerie (wiki), and Plath being the well-known American author (wiki). These two artists have 50 years between the times they are working, but the correlations are immense. Going back-and-forth between their intensely personal journals, I began to fantasize they were in this journey together, holding hands through the winter of life.
