From the dust jacket-

"Now Denise D. Knight has completed the truly enormous task of transcribing and annotating Gilman's diaries, until now available only on microfiche. The diaries document the struggles Gilman endured: the loss of a close girlhood friend; her turbulent courtship and failed marriage; her debilitating depression and failed marriage; her ongoing fight against chronic poverty; her mother's losing battle with cancer; her reacquaintance with her first cousin and, later, husband Houghton Gilman; and the realization of her dream- to 'find out what ailed society' and to improve it."
