Sifting of the best autobiographies
Well done, an Autobiographie can be one of the most enlightening - and mighty - of all the literature. Seven autobiographies are sure to attract your attention: Extremely adversities, whether sickness, dying or mourning, are one of the most fruitful media for memories and autobiographic works.

Joan Didion's daugther and reporter, Quintana, was admitted to hospital in 2003 with a case of pneumonia, which led to a serious September 2008 outburst. Though often a hard reading, Didion's attempt to end her career the year after her husband's murder while taking care of Quintana is a strong, tender and often ironic look at the anthropological answer to the enormous mourning.

"Everyone, like the writer of this work, will look back on their years in Alexandria with the melancholic wisdom that the past cannot be recaptured," the New York Times said when it was published in 1995. Publisher's Weekly described it as "a wonderful souvenir of a place, a period and individuals who have all disappeared".
Partial memoire and partial profile of Martin Amis' dad Kingsley, a short account of the author's early life, sometimes in the shape of a note to his close relatives and close one.

In a 2014 listing, the Daily Telegraph described this odd memory as one of the "20 best autobiographies and autobiographies of all time".
"If at any point in your lives you have fought against fear or felt like an outsider, you will want to include these funny, insurgent memoirs from 2012 in your read list," says Reader's Digest.
