Frances McCue Answers Questions about the Book Shes Writing: Its really not a memoir. Its something else.
Write a fucking memoir about your dad as a ghost. Fine. I might be interested. But if you're going to be coy and annoying about the form. Then, I'm a lot less interested in your book. Or is it not really a "book" it's something else."

Uh, Hertzmann -- what gives? There are lots of books that are packaged as one thing by publishers but don't really fit those commercially defined shapes. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius? Moby Dick? McCue's book sounds fascinating, and all the better for not being just a memoir.
