Armchair BEA Day Four — Nonfiction

armchairbea

Today’s genre topic is Nonfiction.   I never was really interested in nonfiction until I took a Literary Journalism class, where we focused heavily on memoirs.  Ever since then, I’ve become obsessed with memoirs.  I think it is the fact that it is a specific point in time, something that is usually the most devastating point in a person’s lives (I tend to pick morose topics for some reason).  When I read a memoir, I feel like I’m right there with the author experiencing that moment in life with them.  It speaks to the human condition and the idea that we are connected in this life.

Here’s a few of my favorite memoirs:
