Memoirs

“I believe that the memoir is the novel of the 21st century; it’s an amazing form that we haven’t even begun to tap…we’re just getting started figuring out what the rules are."  
                                                                                                                                      Susan Cheever

The memoirs in our collection run the gamut with authors examining their lives with brutal honesty, humor and sensitivity. They give you a true sense of unique lives lived and knowledge won.
