Biographies or Memoirs?

Plinky asked, “What’s the most inter­est­ing biog­ra­phy or mem­oir you’ve read?”

Dreams are nec­es­sary to life~Anais Nin

Anais Nin’s books come to mind right away, hon­est­ly. They’re so intense and sen­su­al that they’ve stuck in my mind, although I only read them once and my copies dis­ap­peared 20 years ago.

Cam­ryn Manheim’s auto­bi­og­ra­phy was quite good, too. I don’t read many of that gen­re (or haven’t since child­hood), so I don’t have that many books to choose from here.
