I was living in the Netherlands. I was learning Dutch.
I felt like a stranger to myself ; when I was opening my mouth it was not me speaking...It was like a Punch and Judy show, a carnival.

The Dutch Diary is an ”absurd illustration” of the learning of a new language, a consideration of its impact on the perception of self, of the sense of innocence, awkwardness  and daring it can give you.
