What is a memoir anyway? The memoir tries to capture certain highlights or meaningful moments in one’s past, often including a contemplation of the meaning of that event at the time of the writing of the memoir. The memoir explores an event or series of related events that remain lodged in memory, describes the events and then shows, either directly or indirectly, why they are significant — or in short, why you continue to remember them.
