Lucy Knisley is rapidly becoming a household name in the world of memoir, alternating between travelogues such as French Milk and Displacement and more thematic memoir work such as her New York Time’s Bestselling Relish and her brand new, well, Something New: Tales From a Makeshift Bride all about her experiences of getting married as well as a critique of marriage as an industry and institution. Knisley has always succeeded at taking incredibly personal experiences, finding a common thread, and weaving something far more universal. Look for my interview with her in a couple of days here at The Beat!
