Ten-Word Tragedies

An anthology of stories edited by

ABOUT THE BOOKWandering lonely through the snow streets of New York
I stumbled on a thrift store that sold postcards by the yard
I bought a mile and shipped them home so I could read
Ten thousand ten-word tragedies, the lives these strangers lead
To remind myself the things I need

Inspired by Frank Turner and his songs especially that evocative verse from Mittens the editors were delighted to learn that he really did find that box of postcards in a New York thrift store. Frank was kind enough to send us the box, and from it we chose a series of postcards and forwarded them to the writers in this book. Gaining inspiration from the postcards and their 'ten word tragedies', the contributors wrote an amazingly eclectic selection of tales moving, funny, horrific, bizarre, and delightful, these are the lives these strangers lead.
