Memoir often gets a bum
wrap as a self-involved
genre, but the irony is that
when it's done well, a memoir
is an exploration of one person's
life that illuminates the lives
— Sonja Livingston
Sonja Livingston is master of detail. She peers beneath the surface and extracts the emotional terrain of people and place. She is author of Ghostbread, an award-winning memoir about growing up in poverty (it's one of my favorite books), and her newest work, Ladies Night at the Dreamland, is a collection of essays.
At 3 Good Books — a blog series I host — Livingston shares her favorite books on the theme of Hidden Lives.
