"Will thrill minimalists and inspire maximalists." -- Vanity Fair "The brilliance is in the brevity." -- New York Post "A perfect distraction and inspiration." -- Denver Post "Irresistibly clever." -- Chicago Tribune "American haiku." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch "You could spend a lifetime brainstorming." -- The New Yorker "The pithiest of life stories." -- O, The Oprah Magazine "Makes for compulsive reading and prove 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 "A torrent of self-expression not unlike the one launched by Frank Warren when he began inviting people to write their secrets on the back of postcards." -- Toronto Star "The petite self-portraits encompass love and love, joy and sorrow-everything you'd expect from a longer book." -- ReadyMade Magazine "A fabulously appealing exercise both for writers and for readers." -- Telegraph "A good number conjure up both a story line and a worldview. Six-word review: Buy it, keep it in bathroom." -- Philadelphia Magazine "I fell so in love with it." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Six words. Personal stories. Infinite possibilities. These ADD autobiographies prove that brevity can be the soul not simply of wit." -- "Dude's weird premise yields interesting stories." -- Ira Glass, NPR's This American Life "Six-word memoirs leave book lover speechless." -- Rocky Mountain News

Vom Verlag:

"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 romance, parenthood, friendship, ambition, failure, haircuts, and French fries. Thanks to massive media attention - from "The New Yorker" to "Vanity Fair" to "Entertainment Weekly" - the six-word memoir concept spread to classrooms, dinner tables, churches, synagogues, and tens of thousands of blogs. Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, "It All Changed in an Instant" contains a thousand (more) glimpses of humanity from writers famous and obscure, including Wally Lamb, Isabel Allende, James Frey, Ann Coulter, Tommy Chong, and Chelsea Handler-six words at a time.
