On Memoirs - Michiko Kakutani, NYT book critic

This quote was added by jsbrowniecake31
The current memoir craze has fostered the belief that confession is therapeutic, that therapy is redemptive and that redemption equals art, and it has encouraged the delusions that candor, daring, and shamelessness are substitutes for craft, that the exposed life is the same thing as an examined one.
