Each book will be a brief, witty, and useful exploration of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry by a writer impassioned by a singular craft issue. The Art Of volumes will provide a series of sustained examinations of key but sometimes neglected aspects of creative writing by some of contemporary literature's finest practioners.In "The Art of Time in Memoir," critic and memoirist Sven Birkerts examines the human impulse to write about the self. By examining memoirs such as Vladimir Nabokov's "Speak, Memory"- Virginia Woolf's unfinished "A Sketch of the Past"- and Mary Karr's "The Liars' Club," Birkerts describes the memoirist's essential art of assembling patterns of meaning, stirring to life our own sense of past and present.
