What is Memoir?


The often incorrect use of the term memoir is a pet peeve of mine; after all, it is my genre. It's what I write primarily, and what I teach. So when the Washington Independent Review of Books asked me to write an essay defining memoir, I was more than happy to oblige. Read my essay.

  2. A job well done, Annette. But now you gave me a list of even more books that I just don't know when I can read them.
