Emily Gould Writes About Others Who Write About Themselves

At the Daily Beast, Emily Gould shares ten of her favorite memoirs—she identifies their common themes as “druggy, decadent bohemia, forbidden or strange sex, art, and power, and, um, cooking.” 

We guess that these are themes one can see in Gould’s own writing as well, sort of? She also refers to a couple authors as “meandering master[s] of style,” which seems like a more generous version of our feeling about her after reading And the Heart Says Whatever.
