In the past, the producers behind this YouTube channel made pieces about I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings memoirist Maya Angelou, Where the Wild Things Are creator Maurice Sendak, and Infinite Jest novelist David Foster Wallace.

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume author Tom Robbins will publish a memoir with HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint.
Tibetan Peach Pie is scheduled for 2014 release. Phoebe Larmore negotiated the world rights deal with Ecco publisher Daniel Halpern. Robbins described his memoir in a statement:

I suppose it shouldn’t surprise anyone if in both content and style it reads a bit like one of my novels. (Photo via Alexa Robbins)
