This class is for memoir writers, passionate readers, or anyone with an active inner life. A memoir written by a writer is doubly wonderful—both for the story itself and for the magic of its telling. We will be reading two wildly different masterpieces and exploring the art of their narrative voices. For the first class, please read The Liars’ Club by Mary Karr. For the third class, please read The Memory Chalet by Tony Judt. We will also be looking at excerpts from the memoirs of authors such as Ann Patchett, Philip Roth, Calvin Trillin, Patricia Lockwood, and Daniel Mendelsohn.
