In My Autobiography of Carson McCullers author (and former bookseller!) Jenn Shapland discovers love letters McCullers wrote to a woman named Annemarie. This discovery leads Shapland to look at a part of McCullers’s life never fully discussed publicly, and in part examine her own life. I love the way Shapland wove her life in with McCullers. This is an innovative biography/memoir that would make an excellent selection for a book club especially paired with The Member of the Wedding, or another work by Carson McCullers.
