Memoir

  • What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding

    What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman. "A naughty but fun memoir of Kristin Newman’s wild adventures in her late twenties through her thirties. Newman takes the reader through adventures in sex, culture and adventure in Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Israel, New Zealand, and the Dominican Republic  and offers wry commentary all the way through the book. I found myself laughing out loud every few pages.   This book feels like a wild vacation without the guilt".

  • What is the What

    What is the What by Dave Eggers. From the Washington Post: "God has a problem with me," complains Valentino Achak Deng, the subject of Dave Eggers's extraordinary new novel, What Is the What. Coming from almost any other person on the planet, this lament would appear hopelessly self-pitying. But coming from Valentino, a Sudanese refugee, it sounds almost like an understatement. At a time when the field of autobiography seems dominated by hyperbolic accounts of what might be called dramas of privilege (substance abuse, eating disorders, unloving parents, etc.), [this] is a story of real global catastrophe -- a work of such simple power, straightforward emotion and genuine gravitas that it reminds us how memoirs can transcend the personal to illuminate large, public tragedies as well."

  • When the Heart Waits

    When The Heart Waits by Sue Monk Kidd "A perennial favorite of mine from a wonderful writer. Sue Monk Kidd took her journals from her mid-life passage and put them into this thoughtful, inspirational book which is a must read for any woman in mid-life who is seeking. Something. That thing. Y'know. It. With this book's help, my bet is: you'll start finding."

  • Year of Magical Thinking

    The Year of Magical Thinking By Joan Didion – “Very heavy, but beautifully written and very insightful and honest. Apparently it is in the process of being produced as a Broadway play with Vanessa Redgrave.”
