Truth and Beauty

How do you write a memoir?

“It seems to me…that you start out with what you know or what you think you know and you work within those ‘truthful’ boundaries until you reach some sort of wilderness of not knowing and then you find a way through until you see an end, or you find a way through until you find the end that you’ve already seen. It can work either way: running away from the truth or running out of it”

Chuck as cited in Abigail Thomas’ What Comes Next and How to Like It
