"A compelling sourcebook for all writers interested in putting
their life stories down on paper . . . at once encouraging,
forceful, and thoroughly convincing."
--Booklist"Your Life as Story is like a French dessert: rich and luscious, to be slowly devoured and savored for all it offers."
--Writers Connection"A book both practical and inspiring. Rainer knows how to shape autobiography into art, and she shares this knowledge with clairty, enthusiasm, and a knack for choosing writers' words that best illustrate her point."
--Bernard Cooper, personal essayist and memoirist, author of Maps to Anywhere and Truth Serum Memoirs
