I understand how significant dialogue is to a story but as I write my memoir the dialogue is really minimal. (I am aware that there are very few memoirs with minimal dialogue....Stitches by David Small is one example) The Liar's Club by Mary Karr and The Tender Bar by J. R. Moehringer are just chock full of wonderful dialogue...J. R. Moehringer took a LOT of notes before writing his memoir. And I have heard that it's okay to fictionalize dialogue in memoirs but I just cannot seem to do it. I feel like it's lying and vey unethical. So what do I do? Rely heavily on descriptive aspects of my memories? Ultimately I would like the memoir written in fragments (chronologically of course) similar to Denise Levertov's Tesserae Any thoughts appreciated!
