Harriet Doerr is best known for her 1984 autobiographical novel Stones for Ibarra, about a woman who moves to Mexico with her husband and lives in a small village. It is a book, Doerr said, about how “memories are like corks left out of bottles. They swell. They no longer fit.” She also is the author of a another novel about Mexico, Consider This, Senora, published in 1993.
