Summary
"This study of autobiographical writing and its reflection of personal and national identity analyzes the different ways in which these authors balance individual American identity with collective identities and reinvent their familial, cultural, and national engenderings." "In each of the works discussed, a private geography - a psychological map, a myth, an ideology, or a fiction - is posited, while its author explores claims to the ownership of memory, history, and the self."--Jacket
