"Sidonie Smith and Julia Watson, two authorities in life narrative studies, distil their diverse forays into life writing in a concise yet far-reaching overview of terms, issues, histories, and texts.  Reading Autobiography is a step-by-step introduction to the differences of self-narrative from fiction and biography; the components of autobiographical acts; such as core concepts as memory, experience, identity, agency, and the body; the textual and critical history of the field; and prospects for future research."
