Forgotten Memoirs: Life is Never Ordinary


Many memoirs, highly rated at the time of publication, slip into obscurity and fade away. We have dusted off a selection of the best memoirs from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s that deserve to be revisited.

These books cover fishing, war, show business, colonial life, education, Soviet Russia, museums and the most common memoir theme, childhood. How can you resist books called Memoirs of an Abominable Showman and Throw Me a Bone: What Happens When you Marry an Archaeologist?

Find amazing memoirs.
