Product Description

Review

Groundbreaking study of how the self is remembered in a variety of recent texts, fictional, non-fictional, and perhaps somewhere in between ! deeply felt and deeply informed. The variety of texts, along with the various ways that memory, particularly traumatic memory, is negotiated within them, makes Memory, Narrative, Identity an important book for literary studies and for trauma/holocaust studies. Memory, Narrative and Identity is an example of fine interdisciplinary work, both accessible to a range of audiences and intelligently written. Of the countless books written on autobiographical memory in recent years, King's will likely be among the more memorable. A rich and delightfully readable account of 'memory that does not lie dormant in the past, awaiting resurrection' but collaborates between past and present, negotiating 'between remembering and forgetting, between the destruction and creation of the self.'
