Bibliomemoir has been described by Joyce Carol Oates as “a subspecies of literature combining criticism and biography with the intimate, confessional tone of autobiography.” Put another way, bibliomemoir approaches critical analysis from a personal perspective, removing the glaze of pretension so often found in conventional criticism, and instead examining the act of reading and interpretation as closely as it examines the text itself. In this panel, four writers (Kim Adrian, Adam Colman, Alden Jones, and Kim McLarin) of creative critical texts on books by James Baldwin, Cheryl Strayed, Ben Lerner, and Karl Ove Knausgaard discuss their work and this wonderfully elastic, exploratory genre.
