The publisher (in an email sendout) announces it as "a unique combination of several genres: autobiographical, historical and documentary. It consists of his extensive and methodically kept diary in the course of several decades, his autobiography written during the 1990s, as well as some documentary materials from his personal archive ... The diary is focused mostly on the scholarly and organizational activities of Nikolai Todorov, and allows a rare glimpse into the intimate workings of academic life during the communist period".
