I really liked these lines when I read them in the Wall Street Journal:

"Memoirs are typically episodic, likely to describe only a fragment of a life or an aspect of
it -- aspects that tend to emphasize emotional subject matter. The things we stay up late
thinking about are the stuff of memoir.
They are our interior lives, our complicated feelings, what we write about when we write about love -- and the complexities of failure and sympathy and ambivalence and money and mortality."
