Memoir/Essay 2010

"Happy" by Alex Lemon(Simon and Schuster)
"Long Way Home" by Bill Barich(Walker and Co.)
"Blood-Dark Track" by Joseph O'Neill(Random House)
"News To Me" by Laurie Hertzel(University of Minnesota Press)
"Half a Life" by Darin Strauss(McSweeney's Books)
"The Routes of Man" by Ted Conover(Random House)
"Florence: A Map of Perceptions" by Andrea Ponsi(University of Virginia Press)
"A Week at the Airport" by Alain de Botton(Random House)
"Technological Slavery: The Collected Writings of Theodore J. Kacznski"(Feral House)
"Ghostbread" by Sonja Livingston(University of Georgia Press)

Two things to note from this list. Regarding the book of essays by the Unabomber, he received no compensation. A portion of all proceeds from the book went to the American Red Cross. Second, all three of the collections that I chose written by women were published by University Presses. I don't know what that means for certain.
