Over the recent years, literature has seen a continuous increase in the popularity of memoirs among the reading public. A memoir is a form of creative non-fiction in which an author recounts and narrates important experiences from his or her life. It is basically a collection of memories written from the perspective of the author himself or herself. It is worthy to note, however, that a memoir is different from a biography. In essence, a memoir is not a full historical accounting. It does not necessarily have to cover the entire life of a person. A biography, on the other hand, does this. It is filled with historical facts about a person, and it covers his or her whole life, up until the present.
