About a year ago, I submitted a six-word memoir to Larry Smith of smithmagazine.net, creator of "Not Quite What I Was Planning," a collection of very short missives by the famous and obscure, which went on to become a New York Times bestseller. With full awareness of what category I fit into, I was hopeful that my piece would make it into their next book.
Lucky me! Page 152 of "It All Changed in an Instant: More Six-Word Memoirs" features my loonball radar piece seen here, right after Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle. Also included in this edition are Art Spiegelman, Gloria Steinem, Tony Kushner, Bob Barker, David Heatley, Malcolm Gladwell, and Gay Talese.
