Considering just how many memoirs and autobiographies are read and written each year, it was interesting to read a history of the genre. Even though memoirs are normally classed as non-fiction, when you come down to it, all novels and fiction are essentially like memoirs, telling the events of someone's life, like Huckleberry Finn, or David Copperfield or Jane Eyre. It was a very interesting book. Often when I read a book I am glad that I read it, but I do not feel a need to read it again. But I am keeping this book. I want to read it again.
