Edu subject: Women's Autobiographies/Life Writing Frida kahlo's paintings tell her life story over and over again: more accurately, they represent her life in a variety of ways, creating many different contradictory identities. The world of Frida kahlo* contains a so-so biography of her; more interesting is the collection of her work. I would recommend it highly as a non-traditional autobiography. More traditional, but very interesting is Maxine kingston's *The woman Warrior and Samuel Delany's The motion of Life in Water.

Edu subject: Women's Autobiographies/Life Writing I will come back and mention several more but right now I want to recommend several little known works by Claire myers Owens (1896-1983). Have to order from interlibrary loan but these are accounts of Owens' spiritual awakening, subsequent journey to enlightenment and eventual embrace of Zen. Very unusual stories and form - worth analyzing. Not much exists on Owens - i just finished a biography i want to get published. You asked for unusal and these are: (all by Claire myers Owens) Awakening to the good: Psychological or Religious.

Voices/ Women's lives: American Women's Autobiography and Life-Writing. In addition to the texts we will read in class, i will ask students to examine a text on their own. I am currently trying to compile a list for the students to choose from. I would like this list to have the additional purpose of showing students how many women have written an autobiography/ life narrative, and broadening their definition of "autobiography." I welcome suggestions from the list, and will submit the bibliography when it's done. I would be particularly interested in non-tradition autobiographies, such as diaries, letters, oral narratives, printed collections of self-portaits, etc. Wink, department of English and Philosophy, stephen.

It is a long way from being an autobiography, but I can spot elements of the author, and possibly other people we knew, in the book. Of course, i could probably say the same of any number of books if I were looking for the connections. so what about the story itself? William Fisher is on a mission to bring the total number of his sexual conquests up to 100. During the course of his quest he sleeps essay with a colleague, a colleague of a friend, a friend of a friend, a friend of a friends wife, the estate agent selling his flat, and several more besides. Everything is going, if not well, then at least according to plan and then Fisher goes and ruins it all by falling for. Girl 99 is a story about love, sex and the sticky area in-between. The lead character had a good mix of funny, sad, frustrating and endearing qualities. Some scenes resulted in full on belly laughs, while others were of a more reflective nature.
Pioneer Girl : The Annotated Autobiography by laura
Message aka beverly Owens from Midwest, usa (66 years). Wizzley author for 7 years. When I was at University i lived in shared houses with the author. Girl 99, andy, for several years. We were on the same degree course and both stayed on to homework do PhDs. When he left to go to london I shared a house with his (then) girlfriend for a year before she left Uni. Suffice to say, over those years I got to know the guy pretty well. A few days ago i got an email to say his book was available in the kindle store so i immediately bought a copy and started reading. Its kinda weird reading a novel written by a friend, because part of you is looking for the pieces of them that have made it into the characters.
