Enjoyed this post on writing memoir --- How to Write Non-Fiction & Keep Your Friends --- but I find two things disturbing: first, her "publisher made it clear ... from the beginning that [she] would have to receive legal permission from any “character” if [she] chose to use their real names," second, if she "alters details" is it truly memoir? Are these normal practices in memoir? Let me know your thoughts in a comment ... Thanks!
