Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 180 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, Not Quite What I Was Planning is a thousand glimpses of humanity--six words at a time. One Life. Six Words. What s Yours? When Hemingway famously wrote, For Sale: baby shoes, never worn, he proved that an entire story can be told using a half dozen words. When the online storytelling magazine SMITH asked readers to submit six-word memoirs, they proved a whole, real life can be told this way too. The results are fascinating, hilarious, shocking, and moving. From small sagas of bittersweet romance ( Found true love, married someone else ) to proud achievements and stinging regrets ( After Harvard, had baby with crackhead ), these terse true tales relate the diversity of human experience in tasty bite-sized pieces. From authors Jonathan Lethem and Richard Ford to comedians Stephen Colbert and Amy Sedaris, to ordinary folks around the world, everyone has a six-word story to tell.
