AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Stephen Matchett discusses 'a new subset of the memoir, the bio-op. In bio-ops an author writes their past as they want us to know it but also set [sic] out their ideas and opinions on anything that interests them'. Matchett cites the writings of Robert Hughes and Gabrielle Carey to illustrate his argument. He concludes: 'These books are not big-noting of the old-fahsioned kind. They describe defeats as well as victories. But it takes an ego measured in metres for an author to assume their opinions on anything and everything are worth recording.'
