Memoirs--not the ghosted celebrity tell-alls, but those produced by interesting people who can actually write well and have stories worth telling--are some of my favorite reading. Below is a list of some I've enjoyed. This list isn't in any particular order. Nor is it comprehensive. I'll add to it as more titles occur to me.
