Can one say it all in just six words? It's possible. Some of the most intriguing in this themed collection: Concern with freedom became his bondage. I put the seat down now. Love: eight pounds and six ounces. ( )

Love wounds the heart and soul . . .

From the editors of the New York Times bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning comes another collection of terse true tales—this time simple sagas exploring the complexities of the human heart. Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak contains hundreds of personal stories about the pinnacles and pitfalls of romance. Brilliant in their brevity, these insightful slivers of passion, pain, and connection capture every shade of love and loss—six words at a time.

From absolute joy to abject agony, love is the perfect topic for the sensational six-word form.
