A Reading Fool

In addition to trying to carry out a rewrite of my novel, I've been a reading fool this summer. This weekend I reread two short books that I have to recommend to my memoir-writing friends: For You Mom, Finally by Ruth Reichl, and The Memoir Project by Marion Roach Smith. Although The Memoir Project is ostensibly a writing instruction book, it's also a memoir of how one writer's life has evolved.

Like our own.
