Memoirs: Answers

My mother used to tease me that my autobiography would be called I Wuz Et Up by the Cannibals. (I have that kind of family.) All of these memoirs are currently popular with the reading public. The titles are intriguing, and I have to read that dog one. Seriously.

Here are the book titles.

  1. Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, by Marjane Satrapi.
  2. Me Talk Pretty One Day, by David Sedaris.
  3. Orange is the New Black, by Piper Kerman.
  4. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, by Dave Eggers.
  5. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou.
  6. Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, by Anthony Bourdain.
  7. Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, by Susan Cahalan.
  8. Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, by Barack Obama.
  9. Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog, by John Grogan.
  10. Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's, by John Elder Robison.

Which one are you going to read first? We understand the President's is pretty cool.
