M. F. K. Fisher wrote a handful of memoirs, each one usually dealing with a certain period of her life. "To Begin Again," which covers the first 20 years of her life, is the first in a trilogy that combines memoir, letters, journal entries and short stories (although this one is only memoir and about 30 pages of journal entries).
As I was reading this, I was astounded at the memory recall she exhibited. She claims at the very beginning that she does not fib, lie or embellish, but I can't help but wonder if she really remembered all of these details or if she was mearly helping a few of the memories along. Seriously - how much can one remember from the age of four or five?!
