"The New York Times" bestseller "Not Quite What I Was Planning" made six-word memoirs an international phenomenon, as people around the world shared terse true tales of parenthood, friendship, ambition, failure, haircuts, and french fries.
But the most powerful six-word stories revolved around that one little feeling that keeps us all going: love.
In the next book, in the "Six-Word Memoirs" series, love (and heartbreak) takes center stage.
From "She kissed me and said yes" to "Love annihilated thirty year age difference," "Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak" contains the most moving slivers of joy and connection - six words at a time.Of course, love isn't always roses and poofy white dresses.
It's also about regret (Never should have bought that ring), mistakes (Found true love; married someone else), and moving on (I finally threw away his toothbrush.) A browse through the brevity contained in this bittersweet collection will have you tearing up with recognition, laughter, or even pain.
From absolute joy to abject agony, love is the perfect topic for the sensational six-word form.
A glorious mishmash of these and myriad other voices. It's a thousand little windows into humanity-six words at a time.
Whether the results are shocking, strange, silly, or sad, they are always entertaining, often inspiring, and totally addictive.
