These days, everybody seems to be writing memoirs. That is, if your life is in any way out of the ordinary, it is apparently deemed memoir-worthy by the publishing industry. Go on a long walk? Memoir. (Wild) Have Tourette’s? Memoir. (The World’s Strongest Librarian) Eat a lot? Memoir. (Toast) In this iteration, the author’s life is memoir-worthy because she is a white Christian-cum-Buddhist who married a “cafe-au-lait” (her words) Libyan Muslim. And–shocker–they have a lot of cultural differences to work out as spouses and as parents, but they pull through because they love each other. The end. I can’t wait to write my memoir: The Unexpectedly Fascinating Life of a Curmudgeonly Librarian.
