The book Telling Memories was listed in Kathryn Stockett's comments at the end of the novel The Help. Instead of being about the lives of black domestics, Telling Memories focused on the lives of female slaves during and shortly after slavery. Some of the slaves seemed to carefully answer the interviewers' questions and only a few seemed very honest about what their lives were like.
