8 / Mostly Memoir

This issue, Creative Nonfiction’s largest to date, features intimate stories that forge a bond between reader and author. Andy Solomon takes us back into his childhood, when he was caught smoking cigarettes in the basement of his Sunday school; Alec Wilkinson brings to life the irony in the way people look at modern art; Kay Morgan, a psychotherapist, writes about what she has learned from eight years of listening to her patients loose their emotional difficulties on her.

“Mostly Memoir” also features previously unpublished excerpts from “An Album Quilt,” by John McPhee.
