Overview

At last the contemporary masters of memoir have come together to reveal their strategies and impart their advice. This book contains an unprecedented wealth of knowledge in one place.

In "The Autobiographers Handbook," you're invited to a roundtable discussion with today's most successful memoirists. Let Nick Hornby show you how the banal can be brilliant. Elizabeth Gilbert will teach you to turn pain into prose. Want to beat procrastination? Steve Almond has the answer. Learn about memory triggers (Ishmael Beah: music) and warm-up exercises (Jonathan Ames: internet backgammon). These writers may not always agree (on research: Tobias Wolff, yes, Frank McCourt, no) but whether you're a blossoming writer or a veteran wordsmith, this book will help anyone who has ever dreamed of putting their story on paper, on writing themselves into existence.

Featuring: STEVE ALMOND JONATHAN AMES ISHMAEL BEAH ELIZABETH GILBERT NICK HORNBY A. J. JACOBS MAXINE HONG KINGSTON PHILLIP LOPATE FRANK MCCOURT DAVID RAKOFF ESMERALDA SANTIAGO JULIA SCHEERES ART SPIEGELMAN ANTHONY SWOFFORD SARAH VOWELL SEAN WILSEY TOBIAS WOLFF AND MANY MORE"
