Here is my favorite, my model for what is really good writing for a memoir. This is a fully packed but concise book detailing elements of a memoir. I use five elements now in memoir writing—Truth, First Person Point of View, Voice, Moving in Time, and Musing. Barrington’s section on going public with your writing gave me the confirmation and “gumption” to tell my family story knowing full well other family members may have a completely different perspective on the story. When Thinking of Miller Place: A Memoir of Summer Comfort was published, I was clear that this was a truthful, visual and sensory depiction of my Miller Place.
