Memoir: A History

There's a great review here in the Washington Post on Ben Yagoda's interesting new book, Memoir: A History, which includes the perceptive: "Those people in [Alcoholics Anonymous] in the late 40's and early 50's can be said to have reinvented American narrative style. All the terrible, terrible things that had ever happened to them just made for a great pitch." I'm ordering from Amazon today.
