Memoir Picks

We all own private thoughts that would make for intriguing stories; but some writers are brave and determined enough to transform their personal confessions and experiences into tales for the rest of us. Each of the authors in our memoir issue revisited a deep emotional challenge with a fresh eye – including searching for God, switching genders, recovering from a 9/11 tragedy – and shared with their readers the lessons in coping they learned along the way.
