Lynn Barber wrote this memoir, "An Education", after an autobiographical colum she wrote became the basis for the movie, "An Education". She explains this at the start and I found the early part of her life very interesting. Her writing, however, was very matter of fact, and rarely attempted to provide any insight into her life or choices.

By the time she got to her adult life, it seemed to devolve into a list of "interesting people" she met at her "interesting jobs", lacking any sort of narrative. I got bored and quit--in retrospect, probably very close to the end. I should have checked out the reviews here before I started.
