When Donald Friend died in 1989, he left behind over 40 volumes of his diary. Now, the National Library has embarked on a major publishing project to realise Friend’s wish that the diaries be edited and published. This first volume covers Friend’s early life as a student, his adventures in Nigeria, and his experiences in the army during World War II. Including 100 drawings from Friend’s diaries, this book is a chance to discover Friend the artist and Friend the writer.
