Credited with sparking the current memoir explosion, Mary Karrï¿½s The Liarsï¿½ Club spent more than a year at the top of the New York Times list. She followed with two other smash bestsellers: Cherry and Lit, which were critical hits as well.
For thirty years Karr has also taught the form, winning teaching prizes at Syracuse. (The writing program there produced such acclaimed authors as Cheryl Strayed, Keith Gessen, and Koren Zailckas.) In The Art of Memoir, she synthesizes her expertise as professor and therapy patient, writer and spiritual seeker, recovered alcoholic and ï¿½black belt sinner,ï¿½ providing a unique window into the mechanics and art of the form that is as irreverent, insightful, and entertaining as her own work in the genre.
