Has your literary work ever been publicly shredded? I’m not referring to valid criticism, of course. I’m talking about verbal disemboweling, about those vicious, nasty, condescending slams that make your soul curl up in disgust.
Parker – Your late step-father, C.S. Lewis, is a revered figure in the world of literature. How do you think he would have reacted to the continued popularity of his works, particularly his Chronicles of Narnia.

You can usually get these facts by listening to boring people.

Virginia Woolf is known for many different novels such as Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Orlando. She also wrote a book-length essay called A Room of One’s Own. She was born Adeline Virginia Stephen in 1882 and was educated by her parents. She went on to marry Leonard Woolf in 1912 but not before she began her career in 1900. The Voyage Out was the first novel she ever published and was changed numerous times before she felt it was perfect. She went on to publish essays and novels as a public intellectual and achieved amazing success. She is still considered, to this day, one of the greatest innovators in the English language. Because she was such an influence all over the world for so long, many people are making it a point to do something in her remembrance.

In contrast to auto-biographies that focus on hard facts, memoirs allow a certain amount of creativity. Some memoirs even include fiction (like Maxine Hong Kingston’s The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts), or stretching of the truth.
