    Love the article on memoir writing! I totally agree. I am reading Sweet Tooth by Tim Anderson right now and I am loving it because it has a focus (coming of age finding out he is diabetic and also gay in 1980s Republican NC), there is an effective use of reflection in that he uses humor as his storytelling narrative and also there is no info dumping (hooray!).

      I hadn’t ever noticed before how much focus helps a memoir! This could partly be because many of the memoirs I read are stunt memoirs, which are focused on a particularly undertaking by their very nature. However, even non-stunt memoirs I’ve enjoyed definitely have this in common. If there’s not one overarching theme, there is at minimum a theme per chapter or section of the book which bring the anecdotes the author shares together.

      I passed on reviewing Sweet Tooth for TLC because I didn’t have time, but I thought it sounded like a great book. I’ll be excited to see your review 🙂

      That sounds awesome! I think World War Z is actually the only zombie book I’ve read since I started blogging, so I should definitely do something about that and October seems like the perfect time 🙂

      I actually don’t know anything about her, but from the book description, she sounds like a very interesting women! I’d love to learn more about her and I think her memoir sounds like it could be very funny.
