9780140055009: The Facts of Life

In this extraordinary autobiography--now a classic of the genre--one of the literary community's most distinguished voices brings all of her novelistic powers to the facts of her own life. This newly released edition features a new Introduction by Maureen Howard in which she discusses the current fascination with memoir and autobiographical writing. In her own startlingly original contribution to the genre, she evokes the wonder of common things and the strangeness lurking in the seemingly obvious with great charm, wit, and energy. A searching and powerful memoir, Facts of Life "reveals Maureen Howard as one of our most significant writers" (The Boston Globe).

--With a new Introduction by the author

"A brilliantly told story." --Alfred Kazin, The New Republic

"Brief, witty, and utterly original." --Walter Clemons, Newsweek
