I'm taking a night class for writing. This one happens to be a Memoir writing class.
It fit my schedule.
But it's also a very interesting style.
One of our assignments is to read a memoir and do a presentation about it.
My lazy impulse is to do a report on a book I've already read. When I stop to think about it, I have read a lot of memoirs:
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Travels With Charley by Steinbeck
Walden by Thoreau
Earth Horizon by Mary Austin
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolfe
Paradise, Piece by Piece by Molly Peacock
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
As Far As You Can Go Without A Passport by Tom Bodett
Walk Across America by Peter Jenkins
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by David Eggers
On The Road by Jack Keruoac
Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman by Richard Feynman
Those are the ones I just remember, the ones I've read already (or at least started).
I love all of them. But maybe I should branch out and try reading something new.
