Cosima Wagner's Diaries: An Abridgement

Franz Liszt's daughter Cosima began her diaries on January 1, 1869, a few weeks after leaving her husband to live with Richard Wagner. Until Wagner's death in 1883 they were rarely parted, and the diaries provide a continuous and intimate picture of the composer's life and work during those fourteen years. Widely hailed when they were first published in Geoffrey Skelton's English translation in 1978 and 1980, the diaries are now available in an abridged paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly
The journal of Franz Liszt's daughter tells of her 14 years as Richard Wagner's companion.
