“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I thought this would be a light memoir about wine and working in the restaurant industry... instead it was a visceral memoir about Victoria's life and her time in the restaurant industry... the horrors and joys of it. I couldn't put it down. #MSWL restaurant-industry memoirs!

“With memoir, I love a story that feels like I’m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Thought of another one for the #MSWL: I'm always looking for memoir/narrative nonfic about extreme sports, athletes, & adventure (think ALONE ON THE WALL, BORN TO RUN). Brought to you by me going nuts over the Olympic trials (Sha'Carri Richardson!!!).
