Check out this Scientific American piece about some new/tweaky theorizing about how memory/memories work.

There's in link in there to the paper that prompted the article, too, if you want to read the McCoy.  It doesn't seem too thick, but I've only glanced at it.  I do like that it refers to "the memory literature."  I like that that's a collection of sciency stuff but also a kind of poetic-seeming construct, taken as, say, the collection of one's own memories (in whatever current state of episodic and semantic they are rattling around, wafting about, being touched to activation or not, etc.).
