Inspired by Ernest Hemmingway's heartbreaking, six word short story: "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn," authors Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser asked writers both "famous and obscure" to submit their tales of love and loss—using just six words of their own. The result is this gorgeous book, Six Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak ($8). Rich with humor ("Leap of faith. Shit, no parachute."—Kathryn Yunker), heartbreak ("Still have hope. Maybe he'll change."—Ariel Leve) and beauty ("At 12, found soulmate. Still together."—Nancy Miner), the book is the type you'll read and share again and again.
