From 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 Louis C.K., Tig Notaro, John Turturro, and Meg Wolitzer, 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."

The Moth Presents All These Wonders is a great collection of stories. I really enjoyed this book. Going into this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I found myself being amazed. I enjoyed the individual voice of each author. I don’t read a lot of memoirs but I really enjoyed this one.

Books are the best way to escape from life sometimes. I am an aspiring author, my dream is to be published someday and, of course, work for HarperCollins. Right now, I am going to school to get my English and Marketing degree. I would like to have my own personal library someday. I love things that sparkle and glitter which is how I came up with the name Dazzled by Books. I love way too many books, so there is no way that I would be able to pick a favorite. I am addicted to Twitter, so if you would like to get to know me better, you can find me on there.
