Description
From the creators of Six-Word Memoirs comes this collection of personal stories from a wide cross-section of writers, revealing how a single instant—the one-time chance, the unexpected coincidence, the sudden catastrophe—made all the difference. Triumphant, outrageous, heartwarming, heartbreaking, embarrassing, illuminating, and inspiring, these life-changing moments come from such contributors as Dave Eggers, Diane Ackerman, Elizabeth Gilbert, Bill Ayers, Jennifer Egan, A.J. Jacobs, and Judy Collins. "I want to tell you what it was really like to think death is imminent, but I can't," writes war photographer Aaron Huey. "I was thinking about not being me anymore. About not having a body. About the things I did wrong. But mostly I was thinking about a girl."
