My Year of Reading Memoir: Based on a True Story: A Memoir by Norm Macdonald

Mon., May. 22
This book is both curious and hilarious. It is a book which, though peppered with occasional truths, is largely composed of of events that fail to hold up to any scrutiny. Still, it has “memoir” in the title and a yellow Biography sticker on the spine, so I think it’s worth exploring this strange volume and the man behind it.
