Summary

The popularity of such books as Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, May Karr's The Liar's Club, and Kathryn Harrison's controversial The Kiss, has led columnists to call ours ''the age of memoir.'' And while some critics have derided the explosion of memoir as exhibitionistic and self-aggrandizing, literary theorists are now beginning to look seriously at this profusion of authobiographical literature. Informed by literary, scientific, and experiential concerns, How Our Lives Become Stories enhances knowledge of the complex forces that shape identity, and confronts the equally complex problems that arise when we write about who we think we are.
