Intersectionality and Identity: Four Recent Women's Memoirs

Lisa Katz
Published: 1 January 2021

Abstract: In her iconic essay on the memoir genre, "But Enough about Me," scholar Nancy K. Miller makes an optimistic claim: that the form, often derided as belletristic, has an active social, even political function. It enables readers to enlarge the national picture in which their own story takes place. And so, she writes, memoir "may well be the most important narrative mode of our contemporary culture."
