Palimpsest

July 10, 2008

There are days in which one asks oneself how do I want or would remember this day and then it is that I think of Gore Vidal ‘s rendering of memoir in ‘Palimpsest: A Memoir’ along the lines that: “A memoir is how one remembers one’s own life, while an autobiography is a history.” A fabulous reading, a panorama of a life…and of an age. The meaning of palimpsest (in the figurative and non-figurative sense of the word) starts ringing different bells.
