About this title:

Synopsis: In the current information age, "memory" is as likely to be an attribute of a computer as a human being. In Graywolf Forum Three: The Business of Memory, editor Charles Baxter invites twelve creative writers to contemplate the externalization of what was once so deeply personal. The resulting essays address a provocative range of topics: the explosion of interest in the memoir; the recovered-memory movement; America in the grip of an "amnesia plague;" the need for coherent stories of our past to help us organize our present; and forgetfulness--political, cultural, and literary--and the shame and allure it holds. Throughout, these fascinating pieces illuminate the art of remembering in a time when memory has become a highly measurable commodity.

From the Publisher: In the current information age, "memory" is as likely to be an attribute of a computer as a human being. In Graywolf Forum Three: The Business of Memory, editor Charles Baxter invites twelve creative writers to contemplate the externalization of what was once so deeply personal: Richard Bausch, Karen Brennan, Bernard Cooper, Lydia Davis, Steve Erickson, Alvin Greenberg, Patricia Hampl, Margot Livesey, James Alan McPherson, Victoria Morrow, Michael Ryan, and Sylvia Watanabe.

The resulting essays address a provocative range of topics: the explosion of interest in the memoir, the recovered-memory movement, America in the grip of an amnesia plague, and the need for coherent stories of our past to help us organize our present. Here is Patricia Hampl, divulging the likelihood that she will continue to reveal other people's secrets, despite the documented cost. Here is Bernard Cooper's belated dismay and amazement at realizing just how public is the publication of his memoirs. Here are Baxter's own musings on forgetfulness-- political, cultural, and literary--and the shame and allure it holds. Throughout, these fascinating essays illuminate the art of remembering in a time when memory has become a highly measurable commodity.
