Exploring Ideas through Books

Memorable Memoirs: Take Two

Memoirs come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: They are not autobiographies. Rather than a straight chronology of the author’s life, memoirs hone in on a specific feature of that life. The following memoirs use both traditional and unconventional formats to do just that.
