The Memoir Network

Kate Christensen talks about writing Blue Plate Special / An Autobiography of My Appetites and about writing in general.

In her memoir, novelist Kate Christensen, author of The Great Man and the The Astral Hotel,  has undertaken to organize her lifestory around food. It is an interesting concept, a theme, around which to make sense of a lifetime. If the memoir is, as Rainer Maria Rilke said of poetry, a momentary order, then Kate Christensen has done just that.

“Kate Christensen always remembers what she ate, what was served, what was cooked, what she cooked, what it tasted like,” reads the book jacket. “…much of her life, she describes herself as being ‘a hungry lonely wild animal looking for happiness and stability.’ Having found them at long last, she finally feels able to write about her search.”
