This essay investigates the form and content of Joyce Johnson’s Minor Characters and Joanne Kyger’s The Japan and India Journals, discussing their choices of personally satisfying writing practices—Kyger’s radical, sardonic journal writing and Johnson’s subversion of the traditional female-authored memoir. The essay includes numerous examples of classroom exercises to teaching the literary significance of journal and memoir writing.
