message 1: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Not only was down-on-the-farm a novelty for some, it came as a complete culture shock for others. Very funny and well-written.


message 3: by Sarrah (new)

Sarrah In what way is John Krakauer funny?


message 4: by Mallory (new)

Mallory Uh...why is the Poisonwood Bible on this list? It's fiction, and when I read it, it was a pretty serious book, not very humorous.

I agree, Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible is neither a memoir nor non-fiction (and has been removed).


message 6: by Cheronica (new)

Cheronica Yes Please

Is there a memoir out there that doesn't have cursing in it or is that mandatory when writing your life story? #feelingfrustrated

Can anyone recommend a clean memoir read please?


message 7: by Karen (new)

Karen Y. I believe there are other ways, other than curse words, that can be used to show extreme frustration in your life story. One of my chapters is about being infuriated - no cursing words are used. Seeking Silver in Every Life Experience by Karen Y. Barnstable


message 8: by Vicki (new)

Vicki These may be funny, but they are not memoirs or non-fiction:
#134 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
#558 Killing Floor
#570 The Rule of Four
#654 Explosive Eighteen
#660 A Man Called Ove
#666 Dog on It
#668 Thereby Hangs a Tail
#708 Takedown Twenty
#729 Notorious Nineteen
#735 Smokin' Seventeen
#736 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
#740 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
