  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: July 2019 marks the twentieth anniversary of the creation of the International Autobiography and Biography Association Listserv, the first major outcome of the founding of IABA in Beijing, in June of 1999. It would be hard to select a more important sequence of events for the growth and development of life writing as a field and as a discipline; in this Editor's Note, I want to reflect briefly upon the impact of IABA and its e-list on Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Center for Biographical Research.When the international roster of lifewriting scholars attending what was billed as the First International Conference on Auto/Biography gathered together on the last ...

  • Wounded Cities: Topographies of Self and Nation in Fay Afaf Kanafani's
           Nadia, Captive of Hope
    • Abstract: For me, autobiography as a process implies writing one's life, accessing and documenting the construction of "I" and "me" in context, multiple contexts—cultural, economic, environmental, historical, political, social, spatial—with insight into who "she," "he," "we," and "they" are; positioning, repositioning, and repositioning again in light of my environments; placing, displacing, and replacing myself in the world over and over; designing, maneuvering, reacting, and recording my geography. . . ."The spatial turn is irreversible," Edward Soja claims in "Taking Space Personally" (10). In his vindication of space against the Bergsonian-oriented vision of human affairs, Soja paves the way to the flourishing of ... Read More

  • Playing a Life in Nina Freeman's Automedia Game, Cibele
    • Abstract: Released in 2015 on PC and Mac by Star Maid Games, Nina Freeman's Cibele is described as a game "based on a true story about love, sex, and the internet." Cibele follows "Nina" and her relationship with "Blake," whom she meets while playing a fictional game called Valtameri. Although Cibele is not described as "autobiographical," Nina Freeman has discussed openly how the game attempts to recreate her first romantic relationship with a young man online in Final Fantasy XI, an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game). Moreover, reviewers and games journalists have described the game as either "autobiographical" or "semi-autobiographical," or have pointed out auto/biographical elements that the game ... Read More

  • Reading, Writing, and Resistance in Audre Lorde's Zami: A New Spelling of
           My Name
    • Abstract: One of my earliest heroes was abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Upon reading his 1845 Narrative in high school, I was struck by his courage in the midst of slavery and his determination to fight for his enslaved brothers and sisters even after he escaped. I was particularly moved by his determination to learn how to read and write and his belief in the power of literacy. These aspects of his life also resonate with my students, as I teach Douglass's work nearly every year on a diverse university campus populated by many students of color, students who are the first in their families to attend college, and students who identify as working class. His is the ultimate literacy narrative, and his journey inspires many ... Read More

  • "Bad" Biography Exposed! A Critical Analysis of American Super-Pop
    • Abstract: Growing up in the 1990s, in a middle-class, American household where near-constant reading was expected and book ownership was encouraged, I believed books were objects meant to be bought and displayed and, as a result of the cost, to be read multiple times and cherished. My first regular encounters with book-buying were at the grocery store. There, in the magazine and book aisle, I quickly blew through the Sweet Valley High series before sliding over to the adjacent shelf of mass-market paperback biographies. I was charmed by the glossy covers, but also by the familiar names and famous faces: these books were about people I had heard of and wanted to know more about. Eventually, I discovered that these books were ... Read More

  • The Shadow in the Garden: A Biographer's Tale by James Atlas (review)
    • Abstract: James Atlas, biographer of Delmore Schwartz and Saul Bellow, takes his title from Saul Bellow's description of the biographer. Or so Atlas thought until he discovered in his journal exactly what Bellow said—that the biographer was "the shadow of the tombstone in the garden" (293). Atlas adds, "the tombstone was the biography" (293), and the biographer a gravedigger.Atlas is one of those biographers who takes what his subject says about biography seriously and is motivated to defend himself, suggesting biography is not an exhumation but a kind of rebirth, or as he puts it, biography has a "life-giving" quality born of a desire to "commemorate a great American writer by telling his story" (293). Ah, but that is the ... Read More

  • Experiments in Life-Writing: Intersections of Auto/Biography and Fiction
           ed. by Lucia Boldrini and Julia Novak (review)
    • Abstract: Lucia Boldrini and Julia Novak's edited collection Experiments in Life-Writing: Intersections of Auto/Biography and Fiction explores texts that contest, highlight, or blur the distinction between the modes of fiction and auto/biography, in so doing departing from traditional genre conventions and conceptions of subjectivity, identity (both personal and collective), and truth. The book brings together lifewriting scholars and practicing biographers, who engage with innovative lifewriting texts from the UK, Italy, Austria, and Spain. The aim of the collection is to trace how writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have extended the parameters of auto/biography.The introduction offers a theoretical ... Read More

  • American Autobiography after 9/11 by Megan Brown (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Megan Brown's book, American Autobiography after 9/11, as well as the opening image of "The Falling Man," the iconic photograph of an unknown man plummeting from one of the Twin Towers, may raise the expectation that the book will primarily be concerned with the psychological residue of that national trauma. Contrary to such expectations, Brown does not focus her study on subject matter that directly connects to the fallout of the 9/11 attacks, such as issues of national security, terrorism, Islamophobia, patriotism, revenge, or collective trauma. Instead, Brown concentrates her analysis more broadly on "issues of subjectivity—specifically, finding ways to manage subjects" that "emerged" in the ... Read More

  • Letter to My Father: A Memoir by G. Thomas Couser (review)
    • Abstract: I believe I have the right and the obligation to write my story as fully as I can, and that means incorporating my father's, for I am in his story and he is in mine.The writing of the narratives is often a form of compensation: a way to restore, repair, or even establish a relationship with the missing parent.It may be unfair that an accomplished scholar who has written some of the most significant investigations of the power inequities and ethics of life writing (Recovering Bodies, Vulnerable Subjects, Signifying Bodies), as well as an introduction to the genre as skilled as his On Memoir, should also be capable of writing authoritative, complex life writing itself. But G. Thomas Couser has done just that with ... Read More

  • The Selfie Generation: How Our Self Images Are Changing Our Notions of
           Privacy, Sex, Consent, and Culture by Alicia Eler (review)
    • Abstract: The Selfie Generation: How Our Self Images Are Changing Our Notions of Privacy, Sex, Consent, and Culture is designed to be read as both a memoir and an analysis, or a memoir based on research. The book's stated goal is quite ambitious: to provide a brief history of the selfie, to determine its psychological and social impact on selfie users, to share a life lived with social media, and to speculate about the future of selfies.While the complex cultural phenomenon of the selfie escapes the author's capture, Eler herself emerges as an open sharer, seizing and maintaining the reader's attention. The author distinguishes her position from "the old-school critiques of the selfie-generation" (114), in favor of ... Read More

  • Invented Lives, Imagined Communities: The Biopic and American National
           Identity ed. by William H. Epstein and R. Barton Palmer (review)
    • Abstract: The Hollywood biopic has been a staple of film production since before sound film. It came into its own as a prestige product of the Hollywood studios, particularly Warner Bros. and Twentieth Century Fox, in the 1930s. In some respects, the biopic has become the fundamental biographical memory of American society, despite its inflations, conflations, and idealizations of its subjects. In Invented Lives, Imagined Communities: The Biopic and American National Identity, William H. Epstein and R. Barton Palmer have collected thirteen essays on American biopics, many originally published in a/b: Auto/Biography Studies, along with an introduction and afterword by Epstein.The book is broken into four sections: "Performers ...

  • An Artisan Intellectual: James Carter and the Rise of Modern Britain,
           1792–1853 by Christopher Ferguson (review)
    • Abstract: Finding autobiographies, memoirs, or biographies of nineteenth-century working-class men is very difficult, since lack of education and time made it impossible for most such men to write about themselves. Furthermore, the surviving manuscripts are often fragmentary or unemotional, lacking the self-examination often found in more middle-class texts. Working-class men are often assessed as members of a class, according to the criteria of whether they fit within a particular vision of social solidarity, rather than as individuals. But as Christopher Ferguson points out, any autobiographer is going to be individual and idiosyncratic. Fortunately, Ferguson has found a fascinating subject in James Carter, an early ... Read More

  • Autobiographical Writing in Latin America: Folds of the Self by Sergio R.
           Franco (review)
    • Abstract: Sergio R. Franco's erudite monograph on autobiographical writing in Latin America represents a significant contribution to the field of lifewriting studies. To date, most critical works in the region have been of limited scope, analyzing the autobiographies of one or two authors at a time. Silvia Molloy's At Face Value: Autobiographical Writing in Spanish America (1991) is the exception, but her study focuses on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century writers, only. Franco's comprehensive volume complements and extends this work, situating Latin American autobiographical texts written after 1950 within long-standing Western and regional traditions on writings of the self. Composed at different points in time, and ... Read More

  • Getting Personal: Teaching Personal Writing in the Digital Age ed. by
           Laura Gray-Rosendale (review)
    • Abstract: Our understanding of the processes and products of writing has changed substantially over the past three decades due to the impact of networked computing, multimedia software, social media, and other digital tools and technologies. These developments have also affected how we define the realm of the personal; in blogs and tweets, in Snapchats and Facebook posts, the boundary between private and public seems quite permeable, and the notion of privacy quite porous. In this context, what it means to teach or practice personal writing has become open to discussion and to new approaches.Getting Personal responds with a rich collection of theoretical and pedagogical approaches to personal writing in the digital age. The ... Read More

  • The Art of Confession: The Performance of Self from Robert Lowell to
           Reality TV by Christopher Grobe (review)
    • Abstract: I read Christopher Grobe's The Art of the Confession last summer against the backdrop of the binge-worthy and Emmy Award-winning series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, about a Jewish divorcée who forges a new identity for herself through stand-up comedy, and a widely reported speech by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in which he railed against "sanctimonious, sensitive, supercilious snowflakes" on college campuses. Grobe, whose examination of performative confession begins mid-century with the poetry of Robert Lowell and Anne Sexton and ends with a coda on student protests against microaggressions at Amherst College, would no doubt appreciate the frisson of my reading experience. The arc of his study from 1950s poetry ... Read More

  • A History of Irish Autobiography ed. by Liam Harte (review)
    • Abstract: In writing his Confessions, Augustine of Hippo left all future autobiographers with the conundrum of inscribing self-truth to be both compelling and maieutic. Augustine's omissions no less than his emphases articulate the autobiographical genre's imperative to create a narrative that in illuminating its subject engages the reader in self-discovery, with the speaker's persona as the maieutic catalyst for that discovery. In addressing himself directly to God, Augustine compels the reader both to identify with and pass judgement on his spiritually questing persona as it moves toward epiphany. As Stephen Spender observes of confessions and autobiography, the author is caught in the double bind of alchemizing the ... Read More

  • Victorians Undone: Tales of the Flesh in the Age of Decorum by Kathryn
           Hughes (review)
    • Abstract: The cover and title of this book promise something along the lines of bodice-ripping neo-Victorian fiction, or, since it comes from an academic press, a scholar's rediscovery of perverse sexuality amid corsets and drapery in the spirit of Steven Marcus's classic, The Other Victorians. The cover and title are not entirely misleading, but Victorians Undone is not predictable, and I was surprised by some of its provocative and even jaw-dropping turns. It is a rare achievement, a fact-rich page-turner, but its "tales of the flesh" are not just about what we would consider to be sex or hidden pleasure. The book ingeniously experiments with biographical cultural history, focusing on a different body part in each of its ... Read More

One day, however, she left for Mexico in a cage to face the Inquisition as conversa. This is a book about Teresa and her Inquisition trial. The daughter of a high-ranking member of the imperial bureaucracy, Teresa was born in Alessandria, near Milan, where she received a splendid education by reading Ariosto, along with many a pious devotional work. After a long military and diplomatic career in Italy and the Basque country, her father, Melchor Aguilar, moved to become the governor of Cartagena where he made a fortune smuggling gold. In Cartagena, Teresa married Bernardo López de Mendizábal ... Read More

    • Abstract: All critics dedicated to the analysis of autobiographies and biographies of historians have experienced, in one way or another, the extraordinary vitality of this genre in Australia. In an article published in 2007, Jeremy Popkin picked up on the notable propensity of Australian historians for autobiographical creation and the attendant exploration of the theoretical and practical borders between the subjective and objective ("Ego-histoire" 129). It is therefore a cause for celebration that a group of Australian historians and critics, coordinated by Doug Munro and John G. Reid, have brought together in one volume articles analyzing particular characteristics of these genres.To set out the volume's purpose and ... Read More

The author avers that since time immemorial blacks have been pushed by the consequences of imperial reason—imperialism, colonialism, apartheid, neocolonialism and underdevelopment (xv)—to inhabit what Frantz Fanon calls the "zone of non-being." Imperial reasoning is a constitutive part of what Ramón Grosfoguel once described as the myth of ... Read More

  • Creating Identity in the Victorian Fictional Autobiography by Heidi L.
           Pennington (review)
    • Abstract: Heidi Pennington's Creating Identity in the Victorian Fictional Autobiography begins with a challenge to our understanding of identity. The book's central tenet is that identity creation in the real world uses the same cognitive and narrative processes as those used by readers of works of fiction. Consequently, Pennington argues, fictional autobiographies can be used to investigate the strategies we use to become real to ourselves and others: readers of fictional autobiographies occupy a doubled reading stance where "the experience of seeming to discover the genuine identity of the main character through the text coexists with the readerly awareness that this character's identity has no real referent to be ...

  • A History of Irish Working-Class Writing ed. by Michael Pierse (review)
    • Abstract: Literary critics' validation of life writing as a genre worth examining has led to certain texts being defined as Art while others are analyzed as accurate reflections of life. Working-class writing, be it autobiographical or creative, has often been unfairly read as the latter, rarely the former. Because of unequal access to formal education, the literary marketplace, the cultural capital required to succeed in the creative industries, and the appetite of a largely middle-class readership for "true life" tales of hardship and criminality, working-class writing has often taken the form of testimonies, documenting the conditions of life on the margins. Irish writing and critical assessments of Irish literature have ... Read More

Candida Rifkin and Linda Warley's groundbreaking project makes a compelling case for the legacy of both mainstream and underground Canadian graphic narratives in the context of the transnational comics industry in North America. As the first volume published specifically on Canadian graphic life narratives, this timely book speaks to the myriad ways Canadian artists envision their experiences in shifting contexts, providing comics studies with broader critical perspectives. In general, the text covers substantial material on forms of life ... Read More

           Salomon (review)
    • Abstract: This edition of German artist-writer Charlotte Salomon's Life' or Theatre', published in the centenary year of her birth in 1917, signals a new epoch in Salomon studies. Substantive reviews in international journals over the past months have set out the stakes of engaging with Salomon's vast oeuvre and taken positions on the mix of narrative, images, and music in its autobiographical artistic project. As Griselda Pollock (whose recent meticulous and magisterial study Charlotte Salomon and the Theatre of Memory will be reviewed in an upcoming issue) observes, Salomon's work draws on cinema and performance, as well as images and narrative, to create the "enigma" posed in its title as both an interrogation and a ...

  • The Phenomenology of Autobiography: Making it Real by Arnaud Schmitt
           (review)
    • Abstract: Telling our lives and listening to the accounts of others is a human yearning played out in everyday social interactions. We are intrigued by other people's experiences (whether we know them or not), and find ourselves easily engrossed in their narrative self-expressions. In autobiography studies we have long analyzed how authors tell their lives in narrative form and grappled with theories of genre, truth-telling, fictionality, experience, identity, memory, and representation in the process. In The Phenomenology of Autobiography: Making it Real, Arnaud Schmitt challenges us to set aside our theories of autobiography for a moment to return to the actual experience of reading life narratives. Phenomenology attempts ... Read More

A visionary contribution to (multi)cultural studies, it ranges across disciplines (history, film, literature, sociology, media), ethnicities (Arab, European, Asian), locations (Israel/Palestine, Iraq, the US, Brazil), and genres (scholarly articles, personal essays, interviews, speeches) to offer helpful new ways of thinking about identity, politics, and culture in the Middle East and beyond. Yet, fundamentally, On the Arab-Jew, Palestine, and Other Displacements is also a profound work of radical life writing, grounded in an individual life and ... Read More

  • Bird-Bent Grass: A Memoir, in Pieces by Kathleen Venema (review)
    • Abstract: Kathleen Venema's memoir is aptly subtitled "in pieces," as it weaves, quilts, or patches together an account of her relationship with her demented mother out of disparate lifewriting materials. As such, it affords a complex model of the recovery and reuse of spontaneously produced genres like diary and correspondence in a kind of collaborative scriptotherapy.The memoir's backstory is this: in the 1980s, the author spent three years teaching in post-civil war Uganda on behalf of the Mennonite Central Committee; during that time, she sent, received, and retained hundreds of letters to friends and relatives back in Manitoba. Of these letters, the vast majority were addressed to her mother, Geeske, who had been ... Read More

  • Private Lives Made Public: The Invention of Biography in Early Modern
           England by Andrea Walkden (review)
    • Abstract: With Private Lives Made Public: The Invention of Biography in Early Modern England, Andrea Walkden provides a compelling study of a subgenre of biographical writing: what is known in early modern parlance as "the life." Yet her focus is not the genre itself as much as the impulse behind it, and the appeal it had for a massive readership. By asking "not just what the early biography is but why it is" (24), Walkden demonstrates that the written life had extraordinary ideological power precisely because it appeared to be nonpolitical. With this claim, Walkden's study enters the realm of historical as well as literary analysis, as she contextualizes the development and increasing appeal of the written life amid the ... Read More
