On Memoirs . . .

"Gore Vidal, in his own memoir Palimpsest, gave a personal definition: 'A memoir is how one remembers one's own life, while an autobiography is history, requiring research, dates, facts double-checked.' Its is more about what can be gleaned from a section of one's life than about the outcome of the life as a whole."
