Mary Karr: The Art of Memoir
Mary Karr grew up in the same little rathole that I grew up in - at just about the same time - so I have identified with her writing ever since I discovered her via her wonderful The Liars' Club. I was kind of a fan of memoirs before I read Mary's first book, but her's struck me as so true and so brave that I now appreciate a good memoir more than ever. And I've always got my eye out for the next good one, especially those written by non-celebrities.
I'm looking forward to grabbing The Art of Memoir some time this week when I finally get the chance to visit a bookstore or two. Can't wait.
