Help Me Find Books, please!

Do you have a favorite book on writing that reads like a memoir?

This November I’m working on a secret project with the Johnson County Public Library. To prepare for it I need to find find as many books as I can that are about writing, but read like memoir. Well known books along these lines are Stephen King’s, On Writing and Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird.

Please, please, please reply to this email and let me know your favorite on writing/memoir style books. If it’s by a midlist author even better, because I feel like buying 50 copies of a book from a midlist author is way more fun than buying 50 copies of a book from a super-well-known fancy town author.

Thank you for your help. I appreciate you!
