In The Art of Time in Memoir, part of The Art of series, critic, editor, and memoirist Sven Birkerts explores the human impulse to write about the self. Birkerts examines how memoirists such as Vladimir Nabokov, Virginia Woolf, and Mary Karr create coherent narratives and how their works demonstrate “circumstance becoming meaningful when seen from a certain remove.”
