I'm an author of a memoir, and a fan of memoirs, and I find that how a person tells their story, the words they choose, their insights, their take on the situation allow me, the reader to not only observe the story, but also observe the author.

It also amazes me how "real life" is often times more fantastic, more unbelievable than fiction.

For me, a memoir has to be written well, it has to have flow, pace, insights, humor, depth--both as I write and as I read, I want memoirs to every bit as satisfying as a novel.
