Description - A Memoir of No One in Particular by Daniel Harris

This unique, quirky book parodies conventional narrative autobiography and asks the question, "Why should we care about anyone's life?". In A Memoir of No One in Particular , Daniel Harris approaches his life as if he were a specimen in a biologist's petri dish. Rather than give the usual narrative account, he tells his own personal history as a gay white male by probing the banalities of daily living and the unexplored territory of the commonplace. Dispensing with clichd and romanticized reminiscences, he revels in the minutiae, mundane habits, and rituals of modern daily living, and finds his own unique contraption of selfhood amongst this quotidian detritus. Equal parts spoof, satire, memoir, essay, literary criticism, and autobiography, this is a radical new book that will dare you to love it.
