"The Inman Diary is a fascinating document
by turns poignant, bizarre and illuminating."

NEW YORK TIMES

"Independent filmmaker Lorenzo DeStefano
takes on the yeoman's task of adapting
the longest recorded diary in the English language."

IMDb-PRO

"In today's Blogosphere Arthur Inman
would be very well-read by a number of people.
He's doing what everybody does, in terms of everyday observations."

WGBH RADIO

"Diary from a darkened room
Hollywood tackles the unbridled musings of Boston's Arthur Crew Inman."

HARVARD GAZETTE

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

THE BOSTON GLOBE

"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

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

LOS ANGELES TIMES

"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

"Arthur Inman today, in the Blogosphere, this guy would be going on and on. He probably would be very well read by a number of people. Because he's doing what everybody does on these blogs, in terms of everyday observations."
