Bill Clegg's favorite memoirs

For The Daily Beast, Bill Clegg, author of Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man, named his five favorite memoirs.

One title on the list:
by Ian Frazier

Ian Frazier could write about a paper bag, and he’d be both charming and profound (I think he has, actually), and this memoir—simultaneously about his growing up in Ohio and the more than century-old history of his family—is both. The last pages and the very last lines of the book are magnificent.
