The Memoir and the Memoirist

The memoir is the most popular and expressive literary form of our time. In The Memoir and the Memoirist, critic and memoirist Thomas Larson explores the craft and purpose of writing this new form. Larson guides the reader from the autobiography and the personal essay to the memoir-a genre focused on a particularly emotional relationship in the author's past, an intimate story concerned more with who is remembering, and why, than with what is remembered. For both the interested reader of memoir and the writer wrestling with the craft, The Memoir and the Memoirist provides guidance and insight into the many facets of this provocative and popular art form.   SKU: 203959034 Manufacturer: Swallow Press Currency: USD Condition: Instock: in-stock Promotional offer: Price: $26.22
