Olney is considered one of the seminal theorists of autobiography, but I don't think his technique would withstand the rigours of current academic publishing (book first published in 1972). In his introduction he tells the readers that he hasn't felt the need to consult other theorists on autobiography and this book was written somewhere out in the bush.

Autem amet non quibusdam. Eos aliquid modi magnam. In voluptatem porro expedita esse consectetur. Consequatur tempora inventore.
