  • Write Your Own Irish Memoir

    In honor of yesterday’s annual four leaf clover-fest, a Mad Libs inspired fill-in-the-blank where you can compose your own irish memoir — even if you’re not Irish! Here’s a sample from mine: These were tough times for the McWeber clan. A blight had destroyed all the H20, and we had just burned the last of the females in the house to stay warm. Still, we had faith in our monkey that He would be merciful and soon swallow the lot of us in our sleep. Read More ›

  • Michael Stipe, “Twat Waffle”

    The R.E.M. frontman has been allegedly been dubbed “Twat Waffle” by Sara Barron, a former waitress at a trendy New York restaurant who claims - in her upcoming memoir People Are Unappealing - that he and his posse rang up a bill of $2000 and left no tip after dining for over five hours. Allegedly, he wouldn’t talk to the waitress either, instead delegating one of his 19 hang-ons to make the demands. He may have lost his religion a long time ago, but the guy could use to learn some manners. Read More ›

  • Joe Torre’s Yankee Tell-all

    The former manager of the New York Yankees has a new memoir entitled The Yankee Years, in which he allegedly writes about some of the Dream Team players in a less-than-flattering manner. So is there anyone with something nice to say about A-Rod? Anybody? …Bueller? …Bueller? …Bueller? Read More ›

  • Herman Rosenblat

    The author of the Oprah-endorsed Angel at the Fence: The True Story of a Love That Survived, a memoir about living through the Holocaust, is coming under fire for possible fabrication. Even Holocaust survivors are pointing fingers, saying his story of being slipped food by a girl whom he later married after meeting on a blind date seems completely implausible. Read More ›

  • The Bush Memoirs

    Laura may be getting her own book; George, on the other hand, can’t find an interested publisher. Poor Bush — low approval ratings are bad news for shopping a book proposal, especially in a down economy. Maybe he needs to start drinking again, head to rehab after Obama’s inauguration, then battle his addiction and go on a national speaking tour and then try to sell his book. Read More ›

  • Behind the Bell

    Screech is writing a tell-all about Saved By The Bell. With ’90s nostalgia kicking into high gear, Screech (aka Dustin Diamond) couldn’t have timed his memoir moment better. The book promises to reveal “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying” — but coming from a man who’s already peddled a sex tape, will it really be all that? Read More ›

  • The Night Of The Gun

    A new memoir, from New York Times columnist David Carr, is sort of the anti-made-up bestseller. Carr’s retelling of his long struggle with drugs is buttressed by serious reporting, not just his own recollections — interviews and documents support his investigation into his addiction, the birth of his twins, his struggle with cancer and his eventual return to the working world.
