Overview

Survival Stories: Memoirs of Crisis by Kathryn Rhett

When poet and memoirist Kathryn Rhett nearly lost her newborn daughter to a serious illness, she managed to find comfort in the stories of others who had suffered loss and crisis, and in the assurance these accounts gave her that she was not alone. Whether or not their struggles were similar to her own, Rhett discovered that the experience of crisis is universal, and the process of enduring and recording life-changing trauma leaves behind a chronicle of strength.

Hopeful and deeply moving, Survival Stories celebrates the memoir as an art form, as well as the human instinct to survive and adapt to adversity. Throughout, twenty-two extraordinary writers, including Jamaica Kincaid, Rick Moody, Lucy Grealy, William Stryon, and Isabel Allende, reveal, as Kathryn Rhett writes in her introduction, that "our life-writing is a passage through grief to knowledge."
