"Wonderful." —Michiko Kakutani, New York TimesCelebrating the 20th anniversary of storytelling phenomenon The Moth, 45 unforgettable true stories about risk, courage, and facing the unknown, drawn from the best ever told on their stagesCarefully selected by the creative minds at The Moth, and adapted to the page to preserve the raw energy of live storytelling, All These Wonders features voices both familiar and new. Alongside Louis C.K., Tig Notaro, John Turturro, and Meg Wolitzer, readers will encounter: an astronomer gazing at the surface of Pluto for the first time, an Afghan refugee learning how much her father sacrificed to save their family, a hip-hop star coming to terms with being a "one-hit wonder," a young female spy risking everything as part of Churchill's "secret army" during World War II, and more. High-school student and neuroscientist alike, the storytellers share their ventures into uncharted territory—and how their lives were changed indelibly by what they discovered there. With passion, and humor, they encourage us all to be more open, vulnerable, and alive.

The compression required to bring these very very short essays to full vivid colour is truly an art. The artists are special. There experiences are as well.
I especially like that I can read one and then think just about it for some time after.

I think this is the third Moth story book the library has and I have loved all of them. I look forward to Tuesdays at noon on NPR radio when I can hear the stories read by the storytellers themselves and wish I could go hear them live. The stories are all too real, you can put yourself in the storytellers' place or at least wonder what you would have done if you were in that situation.
The best part is, I have many new authors to check out. Thumbs up!
