“Irresistibly clever.” -Chicago Tribune

"When Hemingway famously wrote, 'For Sale: baby shoes, never worn,' he told an entire story in a half dozen words. When the online magazine SMITH asked readers to submit six-word memoirs, they received stories that are hilarious, shocking, and moving."


"From the editors of the New York Times bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning comes another collection of terse true tales—this time simple sagas exploring the complexities of the human heart. Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak contains hundreds of personal stories about the pinnacles and pitfalls of romance. Brilliant in their brevity, these insightful slivers of passion, pain, and connection capture every shade of love and loss—six words at a time."
