Synopsis: Hiding from the Nazis in the "Secret Annexe" of an old office building in Amsterdam, a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became a writer. The now famous diary of her private life and thoughts reveals only part of Anne's story, however. This book completes the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author.
Tales from the Secret Annex is a complete collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel. Here, too, are portions of the diary originally withheld from publication by her father. By turns fantastical, rebellious, touching, funny, and heartbreaking, these writings reveal the astonishing range of Anne Frank's wisdom and imagination--as well as her indomitable love of life. Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex is a testaments to this determined young woman's extraordinary genius and to the persistent strength of the creative spirit.

About the Author: Annelies Marie Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Anne and her family were persecuted alongside millions of Jews prior to and during World War II for their faith. It was during this period on her 13th birthday that Anne recieved a diary in which she wrote her life story. Forced to flee their home and go into hiding, the Frank family was eventually seperated, with Anne and her sister Margot being placed in Bergen-Belsen. In 1945, years after their initial seperation, it was discovered that both Anne and her sister were killed, leaving only her beloved diary behind.

Near Fine in Very Good DJ: The Book shows a couple of tiny, very faint smudges at the fore-edge and a bit of barely discernible blanching to the rear panel along the rear hinge; the binding shows barely discernible lean, but remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, or labels. The very DJ shows light wear to the corner tips; just a hint of rubbing to the panels; the backstrip is lightly sunned, with the red letters of the author's name somewhat blanched, but still legible and the darker blue and black titles and publisher's name unaffected: bold and clearly legible; the price has been rather crudely clipped; mylar-protected.
