On Memoir

Hemingway really understood the nature of  memoir:

If the reader prefers, this book may be regarded as fiction. But there is always the chance that such a book of fiction may throw some light on what has been written as fact.

From the preface to A Moveable Feast, by Ernest Hemingway (published 1964).
