Normally a girl’s diary is much too private a thing for us to read.

But in the case of Nora Van Zan Bergen – or, as she prefers to be known, Piccolo Poggioli – this is no ordinary diary. Originally picked up at a dead neighbor’s estate sale, Nora’s – I mean, Piccolo’s – diary has become the repository of all manner of sarcastic sayings, pet peeves, random factoids, and slogans she spots on bumper stickers and bathroom walls. Piccolo’s diary describes the horror of a road trip with her manic-depressive mother, and how she longs to escape this “epic fail” in mother-daughter bonding.
