Funny, thought-provoking, and always entertaining, personal essayist Marion Winik is known for decades of storytelling on NPR and the stunning memoir First Comes Love. Memory and identity are the focus of this new collection, Guesswork, drawn from a column that has won a€œBest of Baltimorea€ from Baltimore magazine several years running. a€œThe Things They Googleda€ looks at how search engines have changed our lives. a€œLove, Loss, and What I Cookeda€ takes autobiography to the kitchen. a€œWhat If You Were Right?a€ and a€œWhat If You Were Wrong?a€ highlight the way possibly incorrect interpretations of long-ago events subtly radiate through our lives over the years.

A wonderful introduction to Winika€™s work, which now spans seven volumes chronicling her life. a€œHer essays are mind-blowing, a€ according to Jane Smiley, a€œyou cana€™t stop reading them.a€The structure of this essay is like a mosaic, placing fragments of different scenes and story. ... with womena#39;s relationships and wardrobes and at times the interaction of the two, using the female wardrobe as a time capsule of a womana#39;s life. ... Discuss the a€œseven sins of memorya€ and give examples from your own experience.
