Look for suggestions....Please....Thank you
I really like reading autobiographies. Here are a few I thought of off the top of my head:
--Zen Under Fire by Marianne Elliott
--After Silence by Nancy Venable Raine
--Love, Inshallah edited by Nura Maznavi and Ayesha Mattu
--She Looks Just Like You: A Memoir of (Nonbiological Lesbian) Motherhood by Amie Klempnauer ******
--The Ponds of Kalambayi: A Peace Corps Memoir by Mike Tidwell
--On Writing by Stephen King
Katharine Grahm's Personal History is a good one.
I also liked The Queen Mother by William Shawcross.
warning - both are very long books
just autobiographies or biographies too?
any particular type? historical, modern, literary, cultural?
autobiog is a huge genre. for instance most actor/actress ones dont interest me.
how about off beat ones. I find all of Temple Grandins' books fascinating. including her mothers memoirs.
not really autobiographical but still... love letters of napolean bonaparte and the marx brothers.
i am a particular fan of history and culture. i love reading tales of simple everyday people, not necessarily famous historical figures.
