Mary-Louise Parker's 6 favorite contemporary books

In Dear Mr. You, actor-author Mary -Louise Parker composes letters "to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today." One of the author's six favorite contemporary books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Art of the Memoir by Mary Karr

In her latest book, the author of The Liars' Club proves that the truth is infinitely sexier and more gripping than anything we could invent. You'll cackle out loud reading this book and get the best required-memoir-reading list ever compiled. If you ever want to tell your story, this book may be the only tool you'll need other than Kleenex and an arsenal of apologies.
Read about another book on the list.
