Comments  Summary

Summary: Thousands of people around the world responded to SMITH Magazine's call for six-word memoirs. Following up on the smashing success of the New York Times bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning, here are more memoirs from Sarah Silverman, Junot Diaz, Neil Patrick Harris, Suze Orman, Gay Talese, Tony Hawk, Amy Tan--and hundreds of never-before-published writers. Funny and bittersweet, witty and wild, or downright tragic, these addictive life stories are both monumental and miniscule. Six-word memoirs have become a globalphenomenon, offering anyone and everyone a telling peek at humanity and a chance to find the writer within. "Father: -Anything but journalism.' I rebelled." --Malcolm Gladwell "Live man's life in woman's body!" --Diane von Furstenberg "Met wife at her bachelorette party." --Eddie Matz "The miserable childhood leads to royalties." --Frank McCourt "I never checked my lottery ticket." --Casey Burra "Shiny head. Hippie hair. Shiny head." --Wally Lamb "Bipolar, no two ways about it." --Jason Owen "So would you believe me anyway?" --James Frey "Can't look at heart donor's picture." --Tonia Hall "Healed with steel, then got real." --Dr. Mehmet Oz "I still practice my Oscar speech." --Jennifer Labbienti "I've done it all except hear." --Marlee Matlin
