More than a year ago SMITH online magazine challenged their readers to compress their life story into six words. The magazine was flooded with 15,000 entries and almost 1,000 of these tag line life stories have now made it into the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. In addition, the editors have thrown in a couple of celebrity autobiographies including Aimee Mann, Stephen Colbert, Mario Batali, Amy Sedaris, and Dave Eggers and the result is, according to SMITH,

“[…] both a moving peek at the minutia of humanity and the most literary toilet reading you’ll ever find.”

As we all know, everyone has a story – the reader contest for the next six-word memoir book is now open.
