The Art of Memoir
"The Art of Memoir" by Mary Karr
As Mary breaks down the key elements of great literary memoir, she breaks open our concepts of memory and identity, and illuminates the cathartic power of reflecting on the past; anybody with an inner life or complicated history, whether writer or reader, will relate.

Review

There's a remarkable woman in San Diego by the name of Lonnie Hewitt who can actually teach writers how to show instead of tell...She focuses on how to write your life story but she also shows you how to develop the narrative skills you need in al l genres...I also recommend that you read her new book "The Little Red Writing Book. It's packed full of genuinely helpful writing exercises and presented in such a charming and entertaining way that you find yourself eager and energized to write after finishing it. -- San Diego Writers' Monthly, September 1998

If you were absent during the one-week unit on creative writing in your eighth grade English class, this book is for you. It is that simple and that simplistic. Don't bother with this one unless you are a complete non-writer who only wishes to get a few little memory pieces in readable -- but not publishable -- form.

What a find! This book is for any and all writers or writers-to-be! Breezily written. easily read, The Little Red Writing Book will help anyone get started writing a memoir or a memory... one story at a time. It will also inspire you to get those stories from your parents and grandparents... before the precious tales are gone or forgotten. Hewitt is a hoot; she has a great sense of humor, and a better sense of what keeps writers writing (or keeps them FROM writing). Be sure to do the exercises -- they really work! I was amazed at the outcome -- and I'm hooked on Hewitt! I'll be sure to use her "Walking San Diego" book next time I'm in her neighborhood.

Format: Paperback
Our son bought a copy for his grandmother to chronicle the family for posterity. Grandma liked it so much, she decided that it would be her Christmas gift to all of us. We can't wait! Looking over the book, it was just what was needed to motivate her to get the story told. She just couldn't get all the pieces together, but now she has the tools to do it.
If you haven't got a copy for your parents, get this book.

I've read the book and done several of the exercises. They're excellent for helping you get past the "What do I do with a blank page" feeling. Her concept is that EVERYONE has a story to tell, but most of us don't know how. Probably true on both counts. I highly recommend this book. Also would be good for giving to grandparents, parents and so forth so you can get their stories while they're still around to tell them.

Format: Paperback
This book is a "must have" for me. I own over two dozen "how to" writing books but when I get stuck or need inspiration, I grab my copy of "The Little Red Writing Book" Similar to Natalie Goldberg's "Writing Down the Bones" and Joel Saltzman's "If You Can Talk You Can Write", just easier, quicker, and more to the point! Thanks Ms Hewitt! I recommend this book highly!
