Recommended Hybrid Memoirs

By Sarah Cannon

By Sarah Cannon

Ok, ok, so I put my book up top. Wouldn't you? This book took all my guts to produce, so I might as well tell you about it. It didn't mean to be a memoir, but it was. And it didn't mean to be a "hybrid", or non-traditional memoir, but it was. If you like a little bit of this and a little bit of that and are interested in story and language that shakes up the form, please check out my booklist! 

The Shame of Losing

On the morning before Halloween in 2007, Sarah receives a phone call from her husband’s arborist colleague: Matt, her spouse of seven years and father of their two small children, has been severely injured by a falling tree branch while working in a neighborhood east of Seattle. Visions of their future go dark as she learns to care for the man she depended on for support. Faced with choices about how to behave through this unexpected journey, she takes as many steps back as she does forward and begins a rite of passage she never imagined.
