Why is the memoir genre so important? What is it that drives us to tell our own stories? The ancient Greek myth of Goddess Memory, and her daughters, the Muses, offers new ways to re-enter the stories of our lives and shape them in surprising ways. Mnemosyne's birthing of the Muses underscores her commitment to express all of the facets of her personal story: grief, joy, love, body, breath, history, spirituality, reverie, and humor. The memoirist follows Mnemosyne's imaginal lineage in crafting all memoirs. Memories live in matter, in the very cells of our bodies. Writing our life stories allows us to consider the content of our experiences, the plurality of perspectives from which we can choose to shape them, and the use that we want to make of them. We may choose to write for many reasons, psychological, physical, and cultural healing being just a few. This book suggests the exploration of an imaginable field is possible when we look at how figures from Greek mythology continue to inspire contemporary life writing.

The authors in this collection examine and critique motherhood memoir, alongside the texts of their own lives, while seeking to transform mothering practice— highlighting revolutionary praxis within books, or, when none is available, creating new visions for social change. Many essays interrogate the tensions of maternal narrative—the negotiation of the historical location of writer and readers, narrative and linguistic constraints, and the slippery ground of memory—as well as the borders constructed between the “objective” scholar and the reader who engages with and identifies with texts through her intellect and her emotional being.

Lisa Frieden was a young professional with a bright future ahead of her in high tech public relations, when tragedy struck. Dialysis: a Memoir describes the year she spent on dialysis, from her initial hospitalization with kidney failure, through the months on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, to her successful transplant operation. Her experience of illness was at odds with the wildly buoyant atmosphere of the San Francisco Bay Area where she lived and worked during the dotcom bubble of the late 1990's. The memoir explores how she learned to make sense of what happened and how she ultimately overcame the physical and emotional challenges of kidney failure to thrive in her new life.

Near the end of his second term as president of France, François Mitterrand decided to talk openly about his life, both personal and political. President for fourteen years, longer than anyone else in the history of the French Republic, Mitterrand was interested not in constructing an elaborate memorial to himself in words but in leaving behind a living testament. He therefore turned to someone whom he knew and trusted, Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, a close friend of many years, to join him in a vibrant, vigorous exchange. The topics they discuss in these pages are childhood, faith, war, power, writing, and those moments––however and whenever they arrive––that shape and sometimes define us as people. Mitterrand and Wiesel's dialogue is spontaneous, thoughtful, lyrical, blunt, far-reaching, and candid, whether it involves controversial moments in Mitterrand's political career, Wiesel's memories of Auschwitz, the importance of family and religion in their lives, or simply their favorite books and walks. Here is an unobstructed view into the lives and times of two of the greatest figures of conscience of our century, an inspiring memoir in two voices.

Beginning with a privileged childhood in an elite family of pre-partition India, to a troubled youth in Pakistan, this is the inspiring story of Salma Ahmed - a woman who surmounted formidable odds to achieve extraordinary success in business and politics. In this strikingly honest and candid account, Salma talks of her three marriages - to a naval officer, a scion of a leading feudal family, and a cricketing star; her conflicts as a mother as she makes the agonising decision to give up two of her six children; and her efforts to build a career as an entrepreneur and political figure in an emerging Pakistan. As she recounts the events of a life filled with dramatic highs and equally painful lows, she does not spare herself any more than she does other players in her story. This is a book that unabashedly reveals many of the hidden taboos of contemporary Pakistani society, bringing into question customs that are an integral, if unpleasant, part of subcontinental culture. Salma Ahmed's gripping narration of her political career is fast-paced and often amusing. The book relates events of the 1985 Assembly, which no other author has yet commented on. Her interaction with the late President Zia-ul-Haq and Prime Minister Mohammad Khan Junejo, MQM leader Altaf Hussain, the charismatic Pir Sahib Pagaro, and several others, gave her a unique opportunity to witness first-hand the intrigue, power plays and unfolding drama of Pakistani politics. Her frequent visits to India brought her into contact with Indira Gandhi, her son Rajiv, and many other leading figures of the sub-continent. This is the absorbing tale of a woman who was a pampered child, an unhappy wife, a repentant mother - but one who emerged triumphant as a woman of substance, in business and politics.

Author Michael Tudorie left Romania for Canada with mere pennies in his pocket, fleeing the tyranny of his home country for a new life in Vancouver. Now, an investor and homeowner himself, Michael remains a down-to-earth, hard-working realtor who's always willing to educate anyone wishing to learn about his corner of the market. Michael believes that Canada is special because we're all from different parts of the world, with a common goal to get along and not feel like outsiders. While other people may have suffered worse atrocities or hardships than him, we are all here to feel safe, comfortable, and present as our best selves, especially for future generations. In this book, Michael shares his journey through life with the reader, because he believes that everything has come together for a reason-that all the challenges he faced earlier in life gave him the foundation to accomplish what he has today. If he hadn't had the courage to leave his home as communism arrived, jumping onboard that ship in a Swedish port, he might not have had the courage to launch his own business. The various circumstances he faced over the years strengthened and prepared him for the next challenge, and he looks forward to sharing these challenges and meeting those that lie ahead.

Many will recognize the name of Tadeusz Bobrowski-Joseph Conrad's uncle-a Polish landowner living in the Ukraine. A member of one of Tsar Alexander II's regional committees charged with abolishing serfdom, Bobrowski angered many of his fellow landowners by his commitment to land reform, yet he also clashed with Poles who supported the January Rising against Russia. After Conrad's parents' were killed for their anti-tsarist views, Bobrowski became the young author's guardian and encouraged him to go to sea. Throughout his life, he remained Conrad's constant correspondent and vital link to his homeland, and Bobrowski dire opinion of Polish society shaped the novelist's gloomy view of human politics. This volume is the first extensive English translation of Bobrowski's memoir, which offers a full portrait of the reformer's thoughts on an optimal plan for Poland under Russia's rule. His views contrasted sharply with the more common, Romantic conception of Polish patriotism-a form that encouraged armed uprisings against the Tsar's armies. Bobrowski urged independence through a plan of economic, social, and cultural improvement-an effort that came to be called "organic work." Bobrowski was called a tsarist collaborator and a coward, but his memoir reveals his practical humanitarianism, as well as a full portrait of Poland's political reality in the years of Conrad's childhood and youth.

"Lyrical and emotionally gutting." —O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE “Intellectually satisfying [and] artistically profound.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS (STARRED REVIEW) “Mesmeric.”—THE PARIS REVIEW “Vividly awesome and truly great." —EILEEN MYLES “Gorgeous, gutting, unforgettable." —LENI ZUMAS “Brilliant.” —MICHELLE TEA An arresting memoir equal parts refugee-coming-of-age story, feminist manifesto, and meditation on motherhood, displacement, gender politics, and art that follows award-winning writer Sophia Shalmiyev’s flight from the Soviet Union, where she was forced to abandon her estranged mother, and her subsequent quest to find her. Russian sentences begin backward, Sophia Shalmiyev tells us on the first page of her striking lyrical memoir. To understand the end of her story, we must go back to the beginning. Born to a Russian mother and an Azerbaijani father, Shalmiyev was raised in the stark oppressiveness of 1980s Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), where anti-Semitism and an imbalance of power were omnipresent in her home. At just eleven years old, Shalmiyev’s father stole her away to America, forever abandoning her estranged alcoholic mother, Elena. Motherless on a tumultuous voyage to the states, terrified in a strange new land, Shalmiyev depicts in urgent, poetic vignettes her emotional journeys through an uncharted world as an immigrant, artist, and, eventually, as a mother of two. As an adult, Shalmiyev voyages back to Russia to search endlessly for the mother she never knew—in her pursuit, we witness an arresting, impassioned meditation on art-making, gender politics, displacement, and most potently, motherhood.

Dirouhi is Armenian for Dorothy. This is the lady who shared the childhood stories, which filled her life with happiness. Even in her twilight years, she still is filled with excitement when recalling how much fun Friday nights were, just because her neighbor spent time dramatically reciting various adventures to the children. The ending novel is an unfolding of generations with twins, their loves and family ties, all created with Christian meaning. The life of Nina and Edward begin at a scene in the forest, where they are curious about lights, a scene that one day becomes a big part of their life. Visiting Rae and hearing her life and work in music is described so that the reader wishes they had been as creative and ingenious as she. A courageous journey to Russia develops into more unraveling of characters until the ending of the book, which is really just the beginning.
