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.

"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.
