Marina Benjamin & Alyson Hallett

Memoir

Marina Benjamin examines the changing role of the personal voice in contemporary memoir, and Alyson Hallett takes us to Charles Causley’s home town of Launceston. Marina Benjamin examines the changing role of the personal voice in contemporary memoir, celebrates the sharing of ecstatic highs and vertiginous tumbles, and notes that it’s writerly craft that lifts a work beyond mere self-pimping. Alyson Hallett takes us to Launceston in Cornwall, home of the writer Charles Causley, in the centenary year of his birth.
