I recently read Mary Karr’s excellent book The Art of Memoir, and it of course got me thinking about my favorite memoirs.
I love the genre; I’ve read many over the years. Today I’m sharing 8 of my favorites, “favorite” in this case meaning the ones I keep coming back to. I’ve read these 3 or 4 or even a dozen times.
For those getting started in the list: I love the following, of course. Karr also includes a terrific (and long) list in the back of her book.
