    Would like to know what you think of the Mann memoir. I saw her here in Atlanta, GA on her book tour. She talked very little about her photography. Interested in her work for a long time. Thanks for the list.

    Wonderful list–already have the Doty, Manguso, and Julavitz waiting. The others sound so interesting, particularly Julian Barnes’ essays.
