Description
Following up on Not Quite What I Was Planning, the first compilation of six-word life stories submitted to SMITH magazine, this second collection features memoirs from Sarah Silverman, Junot Díaz, Neil Patrick Harris, Suze Orman, Gay Talese, Tony Hawk, Amy Tan, and hundreds of never-before-published writers. Funny or bittersweet, witty or wild, sometimes downright tragic, these addictive little gems are at once monumental and miniscule. "Father: 'Anything but journalism.' I rebelled," says Malcolm Gladwell, while Dr. Oz writes, "Healed with steel, then got real," and James Frey wonders, "So would you believe me anyway?"

"Will thrill minimalists and inspire maximalists."—Vanity Fair

"Makes for compulsive reading and proves arguably as insightful as any 300-page biography. Taken as a whole, this cascade of quotes from contributors famous and unknown creates a dizzying snowball effect of perspectives and feelings."—Publishers Weekly
