Overview

&;Wonderful." &;Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of storytelling phenomenon The Moth, 45 unforgettable true stories about risk, courage, and facing the unknown, drawn from the best ever told on their stages


Carefully selected by the creative minds at The Moth, and adapted to the page to preserve the raw energy of live storytelling, All These Wonders features voices both familiar and new. Alongside Meg Wolitzer, John Turturro, Tig Notaro, and Hasan Minhaj, readers will encounter: an astronomer gazing at the surface of Pluto for the first time, an Afghan refugee learning how much her father sacrificed to save their family, a hip-hop star coming to terms with being a &;one-hit wonder,&; a young female spy risking everything as part of Churchill&;s &;secret army&; during World War II, and more.

High-school student and neuroscientist alike, the storytellers share their ventures into uncharted territory&;and how their lives were changed indelibly by what they discovered there. With passion, and humor, they encourage us all to be more open, vulnerable, and alive.

Featuring contributions from Louis CK, Meg Wolitzer, Tara Clancy, Tig Notaro and many others, a collection of more than 3,000 true stories performed on Moth stages around the world celebrates the moments when we stand on the brink of uncharted territory and bravely plunge forward.
