Six-Word MemoirsDownload audio (MP3)
When asked to sum up his life in six words, the late Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt came up with the following: "The miserable childhood leads to royalties." McCourt's micro-memoir is among the many collected in a new book "It All Changed in an Instant: More Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure." We'll talk to the Smith Magazine editors who compiled the volume, and we want to hear your six-word memoir. Leave yours in the comments section below.
