RE­MEM­BER THIS?

The Simple Things - - FRESH | AUGUST THINGS -

Writ­ing cues in The Ac­ci­den­tal Me­moir by Eve Makis and An­thony Crop­per Well aware of the daunt­ing task of work­ing out what to say and why you want to say it, au­thors Makis and Crop­per have de­vised writ­ing ex­er­cises to start your lit­er­ary ad­ven­ture. You’re in­vited to close your eyes and re­mem­ber the sounds, smells, sights and tex­tures of the place you grew up in, cre­ate the sound­track of your life by list­ing your favourite or for­ma­tive songs from the past or present and re­call the most re­bel­lious thing you’ve ever done, and how it made you feel. By the end of the book, you’ll have ex­or­cised your demons, had fun and com­pleted your very own au­to­bi­og­ra­phy. ( 4th Es­tate)
