Memoirs usually focus on a specific time period in someone’s life, but even during this short window an author can go through transformational, life-changing events. The common denominator of these memorable memoirs is that you can imagine yourself in their story.

The Horse Boy is about a father who takes his severely autistic son to Mongolia to find the ancient culture and shamans who believes in the healing effects of horses. The reader not only identifies with the physical journey, but this coming of age memoir offers a snapshot into this misunderstood condition that affects millions worldwide by having his son narrate parts of his own story. It also became a documentary, as the father took a film crew with him.

When Cheryl Strayed wrote about her experiences trekking the Pacific Crest Trail in 1995 in the bestselling memoir Wild, Strayed was penniless and in debt. Now she’s one of the highest paying celebrity memoir writers out there, in part thanks to a spot in Oprah’s Book Club.

The Sarashina Nikki is an example of an early Japanese memoir, written in the Heian period . A genre of diary writing, Nikki Bungaku , emerged during this time.

Over the latter half of the 18th through the mid-20th century, memoirists generally included those who were noted within their chosen profession. These authors wrote as a way to record and publish their own account of their public exploits. Authors included politicians or people in court society and were later joined by military leaders and businessmen. An exception to these models is Henry David Thoreau 's 1854 memoir Walden , which presents his experiences over the course of two years in a cabin he built near Walden Pond .

Twentieth-century war memoirs became a genre of their own, including, from the First World War , Ernst Jünger ( Storm of Steel ) and Frederic Manning 's Her Privates We . Memoirs documenting incarceration by Nazi Germany during the war include Primo Levi 's If This Is a Man , which covers his arrest as a member of the Italian Resistance Movement , followed by his life as a prisoner in Auschwitz ; and Elie Wiesel 's Night , which is based on his life prior to and during his time in the Auschwitz, Buna Werke , and Buchenwald concentration camps.
