dc.description.abstractThis file contains the first diary Waguih Ghali kept while living in Rheydt, West Germany between 24 May 1964 and 11 February 1965. During that time Ghali was employed by the British Army Royal Pay Corps. As a result, he writes frequently about interactions with British military personnel. In this notebook, he reflects on the critical reception of Beer in the Snooker Club, and records his earnings from the sale of his book. He also notes his submission of a story to the The Guardian (Manchester), published under the title “The Roses are Real” (20 Feb 1965). As is typical throughout the diary notebooks, he writes about literature he is reading and his efforts to write, friends and romantic interests, drinking and depression. This diary is dated 1964 May 24 - 1965 March 27.en_US
