Writing About Family and Friends

Here's something memoirists (but not only memoirists) have to deal with: writing about family and friends "so they'll still speak to you." Hana Schank's mediabistro.com essay offers some tips from Schank's own experience. But in the end, as Schank concludes, "Either you've got a family and friends who, despite it all, will love you and invite you to holidays, or you don't."
