Summary
"From storytelling phenomenon The Moth: a collection about risk, courage, and facing the unknown, drawn from the best stories ever told on their stages. All These Wonders features voices both familiar and new. Storytellers include Louis C.K., Tig Notaro, John Turturro, and Meg Wolitzer, as well as a hip hop "one hit wonder," an astronomer gazing at the surface of Pluto for the first time, and a young female spy risking everything as part of Churchill's "secret army" during World War II. They share their ventures into uncharted territory--and how their lives were changed forever by what they found there. These true stories have been carefully selected and adapted to the page by the creative minds at The Moth, and will encompass the very best of the 17,000+ stories performed in live Moth shows around the world."--
