Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: Each year brings a glut of new memoirs. In addition to becoming bestsellers in their own right, memoirs have become a popular object of inquiry in the academy and a mainstay in most MFA workshops. Courses in what is now called life-writing study memoir alongside personal essays, diaries, and autobiographies. This book proffers a concise history of the genre (and its many subgenres) while taking readers through the various techniques, themes, and debates that have come to characterise the ubiquitous literary form.
