I've been getting into memoirs lately (something I used to never, ever read), mostly because a few of my favorite celebs recently put out books -- Lauren Graham and Mara Wilson. (They're just as funny in writing as they are on screen, by the way.) I also read, "Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress" in high school, which was surprisingly entertaining.

Anyone have recommendations for witty, insightful, essay-style memoirs?

Oooh, that sounds interesting. I would love something with an interesting story/perspective like that. I'll make a note. Thanks!

I've never been into memoirs.  There's really no celebrity that is important enough to read about them or their life, but this one does sound interesting...  I'm with you.  That does sound interesting.  I might just read my first memoir.  Thanks!

There should be a book club group! We can all read a book and chat about it together! :D

We could have one on here.  There is a way to make a new topic for people who want to join.  I'm game if anyone else wants to do it.  I've never been in a book club or even done a buddy read.  Anyone else interested???

I’ve started reading some memoirs lately, and I’m really enjoying them. Lauren Graham’s has been on my to-read list. I need to head to the library and get it. 

I recently enjoyed 'Becoming' by Michelle Obama. 
As well, 'In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom' by Yeonmi Park.
