A timeless collection of memoirs, culled from the pages of Victoria magazine, by some of the finest women writers around. Such distinguished authors as Diane Ackerman, Jane Howard, Perri Klass, Madeleine La€™Engle, Susan Minot, Francine Prose, Carol Shields, and Jane Smiley have contributed to these pagesa€”and their emotionally rich, lovingly crafted essays embrace all phases of a womana€™s life, as well as literature and the process of writing itself. The topics so insightfully and often poignantly explored include childhood, motherhood, solitude, rituals, home, sisters, and remembering the past. From Phyllis Therouxa€™s memories of her convent education to Susan Schneidera€™s thoughts on living in a€œA Gently Haunted House, a€ each piece will touch your heart, mind, and soul.Humankinda#39;s first memory palace was built of rhyme and rhythmic incantation, and it housed our collective wisdom. It seems like a great shame that teaching children to memorize poetry is now out of fashion. ... They can be sublimely silly.
