Literary, military, art, true crime, film and drama, nature . . . we will tread all over the biographical and memoir genre to find little treasures and great epic books. Dare Wright, Robert E. Lee, Kenneth Clark and David Sedaris . . . how about John Lewis’s narration through graphic art of his walk across the Edmund Pettus bridge?
