Summary
What moves memoirists to make their most personal stories public? In Why We Write About Ourselves, twenty of America's most successful memoirists answer this question -- and share the nuts and bolts of how they do it. Exploring such issues as the reliability of memory, the ethics of disclosure, and how to protect others' privacy without self-censoring, these bestselling memoirists reveal what keeps them going during the tough times and what they love most -- and least -- about revealing themselves in print
Summary
A follow-up to Why We Write collects insights, anecdotes and personal facts from 20 leading American memoirists to share lighthearted writing advice and thoughts about what prompts writing about one's own life
