Books that are memoirs. As a literary genre, a memoir forms a subclass of autobiography – although the terms 'memoir' and 'autobiography' are today almost interchangeable. The author of a memoir may be referred to as a memoirist. Some memoirs may be less structured and less encompassing than formal autobiographical works.
- They may be about part of a life rather than the chronological telling of a life from childhood to adulthood/old age.
- Traditional memoirs dealt with public matters, rather than personal.
- Many older memoirs contain little or no information about the writer, and are almost entirely concerned with other people.
