Stone rescues autobiography from the thickets of recent critical theory, in which the life portrayed has often seemed less important than the inventive literary techniques. He argues that the techniques are important because knowledge of the life is important to our culture. Restricting himself primarily to 16 writers of the 20th century, Stone juxtaposes two or three figures in given chapters, such as "Becoming a Woman in Male America: Margaret Mead and Anais Nin" and "Two Recreate One: The Act of Collaboration in Recent Black Autobiography -- Ossie Guffy, Nate Shaw, Malcolm X." Other writers considered are W.E.B. DuBois, Henry Adams, Black Elk, Thomas Merton, Louis Sullivan, Richard Wright, Norman Mailer, Frank Conroy, and Lillian Hellman.
