Good books lately: Thanks for the memories

“Memoir is a window into a life.” – William Zinsser

I look forward to slipping away to a quiet place with a new memoir tucked under my arm. I settle down and escape to another life for a while, making the acquaintance of someone who lives a life very different from my own.

When we dive into a memoir, we swim with the author as they recount episodes from the river of their lives. We share their journey as they float peacefully on smooth water or struggle to stay afloat and battle powerful waves that threaten to pull them down.

A well-crafted memoir engages us, expands our world, and fosters empathy. We are whisked away and thrown into adventures that we will never come close to experiencing in our own lives.
