About this book

Serial Memoir chronicles the phenomenon of seriality in memoir, a transition in life writing toward repeated acts of self-representation in the later twentieth century. Such a shift demonstrates a new way to understand and represent constantly-shifting subjectivities and their ambivalent relationship to the concept and structure of the archive.

Reviews

The rise of the serial memoir in the latter half of the twentieth century and beyond is an important and timely topic, one that has not previously been addressed in any sustained way by scholars in the field. The first critic to deal with seriality at length and in depth, Stamant makes a substantial contribution to the field. - G. Thomas Couser, Hofstra University, USA
