   Beautiful and thought-provoking.
I thought it might be helpful for the upcoming Life Writing graduate class. I could not put it down because it drew me in. It's beautiful and heart-breaking. I secretly hoped that it would be added to the syllabus. I will be returning to it for a long time.

   a life changing book for writers
The question, "Why bother writing?" was posed by anyone who was struggling with it. Will find this meditation on the importance of sharing our stories life changing. One of the most straightforward and honest writers out there.

   The Craft of Memoir Writing
Body Work The Radical Power of Personal Narrative is a collection of essays written byMelissa Febos. It is very feminist and makes you think about your own experiences and how dominant society and culture are. Febos ruminates on the craft of writing and about truth with its subjectivity tied to a person's perspective. Overall, I found this incredibly fascinating and gave me food for thought, especially the parts where she talks about ethical concerns about writing about other people and reframing our own stories. I am not a writer but I enjoyed this book because I am a lifelong feminist and I was an English major in college. Thanks to HighBridge Audio for providing the audiobook.

   Absolutely essential
It's a must-read for anyone writing about their life. I will recommend this book to every writer I know for the rest of time, because I wish I'd had this book when I was writing my memoir.
