But Enough About Me is a group biography, or even an ethnography, of women, primarily middle-class and urban, now in their fifties and sixties. The book also mounts a defense of the memoir against accusations of terminal narcissism by showing how the forms of life writing -memoirs, diaries, essays -are as much about others as they are about their authors.
Miller's book seems more than its sum, larger than its slim weight in the hand... fascinating... poignant... looms large.
— Cora Kaplan
Nancy K. Miller's new book is an elegant and witty meditation of self-knowledge, particularly for women. It should be read by all of us who are struggling, in these strange, loudly postfeminist times, to make sense of our stories as they have been interpolated by post-World War II America.
