Specialty. Mary Karr is a great writer and acclaimed teacher, and she offers both those skills to readers of her book titled, The Art of Memoir. For anyone interested in writing a memoir, this book will provide either encouragement or despair. For those readers who love fine writing, this book offers insight into why the memoir can be a success or a failure. I read this quickly and came away with this conclusion for me: I like to read Karr’s memoirs more than I like to absorb her lessons.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
