Read in June, 2008

This anthology isn't a well-culled sampling of the finest writing in America, but it never makes itself out to be -- and therein lies its charm. This collection of personal narratives sent in to NPR's National Story Project offers a cross-section of contemporary life experiences -- ranging from war stories and childhood memories to lovesick missives and tales of woe. But what all of the stories have in common is a sincerity that even professional writers often miss, and for that alone I enjoyed this book.
