Wallach's lucidly written essay offers much food for thought, both for scholars of history and life writing and for general readers trying to recapture the flavor of the past. --Jeremy Popkin "Journal of Interdisciplinary History " Wallach's interdisciplinary training allows her to demonstrate how attention to language, symbolism, allegory, and other literary devices can uncover more historically relevant content in a memoir than a mere surface reading would allow. This is a well-written and well-argued response to a single question: How should historians handle literary memoirs as historical sources? --Jennifer Ritterhouse "author of Growing Up Jim Crow: How Black and White Southern Children Learned Race " Singularly sensitive, well argued, and closely attuned to the many manifestations of southern rage. --Journal of Southern History Historians and particularly history students will find many valuable insights in this book. Wallach lays out a theoretical framework for understanding memoirs as source material and then does an excellent job of putting that theory into practice. --Steve Estes "author of I am a Man: Race, Manhood, and the Civil Rights Movement " A quietly but uncommonly ambitious work . . . Wallach's review of the theoretical literature on autobiography is refreshingly lucid and cogent. . . . I look forward to periodically rereading it and wrestling with its conclusions. --W. Fitzhugh Brundage "Journal of American History "
