Praise for the book: “Memoir is tricky business. It requires allegiance to the truth and, at the same time, the ability to craft a compelling story. Questions arise: How to access memory? What is important? What about sequencing? Where it the borderline of fiction? Through TellTale Souls Writing… Lynn Henriksen dissects the idea of memoir into its many invisible parts and shows us a framework for making it all come together. She gives activities, prompts, examples and if we worry the process is becoming too mechanical, passes along advice as to how to go about accessing the deepest spiritual truths. In the end, and with her guidance, we might not only make literature out of memory but be blessed with unexpected enrichments of spirit.” —H.
