Memoir-related links I liked this week


My memoir-related internet meanderings from the week ending Friday 22 July:

This weekend I’ll be finishing Geoff Dyer’s Out of Sheer Rage, one of the two non-fiction books that have inspired me most with my own work-in-progress this year (the other being the above-mentioned Batuman’s The Possessed). I’m looking forward to opening my autographed copy of Mr Peanut author Adam Ross’s new story collection, Ladies and Gentlemen, from which he read so persuasively this week at Brooklyn’s Book Court. Having interviewed him for the Courier-Mail earlier this year, it was a pleasure to meet him in person. If the reviews are anything to go by, I’m in for a treat.

  1. Virginia, your Griffith Review piece was especially interesting to me as my first job out of University was working in the photography department of Associated Press. I was always interested in the kind of issues you addressed and I had a very indulgent articulate and intelligent mentor, whom you should contact if you ever want to explore the subject further. Trust you are well -all the best for the holidays!
