"The New York Times" bestseller "Not Quite What I Was Planning" made six-word memoirs an international phenomenon, as people around the world shared terse true tales of romance, parenthood, friendship, ambition, failure, haircuts, and French fries. Thanks to massive media attention - from "The New Yorker" to "Vanity Fair" to "Entertainment Weekly" - the six-word memoir concept spread to classrooms, dinner tables, churches, synagogues, and tens of thousands of blogs. Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, "It All Changed in an Instant" contains a thousand (more) glimpses of humanity from writers famous and obscure, including Wally Lamb, Isabel Allende, James Frey, Ann Coulter, Tommy Chong, and Chelsea Handler-six words at a time.
