Of course you want to know which memoirs make great gifts. So here is a quick and dirty guide to what’s good from my perspective. Hope it helps you delight someone who loves to read life stories. You can make shopping really easy by clicking on the picture of the book. It takes you right to Amazon!
I included the National Book Award-nominated American Salvage, even though it is not a memoir, because I mentioned it in a previous post and because I am so thrilled that Kalamazoo author Bonnie Jo Campbell, who has taught me a lot about writing, won this honor this year.
Also, if you want to read my reviews, use the search function on this blog, which will take you right to a previous post if I have reviewed the book or discussed the author as memoirist.
The last two books here have not been mentioned in this blog–that’s because they are on my own list. Hope my family is reading :-)–and happy holidays to all.
These are just the books reviewed or mentioned here in the last six months. If you want me to create another post with previous books mentioned or reviewed, just comment below!
