Lose Yourself in These Riveting Personal Narratives

These eight new memoirs highlight the importance of friendship, music, food, and art in our lives—elements that allow these enormously skillful writers to overcome (or at least endure) displacement, parental abuse, addiction, obsession, and the wreckage of war. How lucky we are that they have shared their stories with us, instilling faith in the transformative power, and the comfort, of literature.

Happy reading,
