“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

I consider memoirs to be a blend of fiction and nonfiction. AFTERSHOCKS by Nadia Owusu, WILD GAME by Adrienne Brodeur, and MY BROKEN LANGUAGE by Quiara Alegría Hudes are my all-time favorites. A good memoir reads like a novel and is packed with conflict, tension, and stakes.
