21. "A Childhood: A Biography of a Place" ~ Harry Crews

Possibly the best book on memoir writing ever created.

This is my fourth time through it. His descriptions never become stale. His storytelling never becomes predictable. If nothing else, just reading his work makes me want to be a better writer.

Now, if only James Frey had read this before publishing his "memoir"...

5.0 out of 5.0 Skip, Run, and Go Nakeds.
