Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. MICHAEL KIMBALL WRITES YOUR LIFE STORY (ON A POSTCARD) started as a writing performance—with strangers lined up to share the intimate details of their lives while he wrote their biographies for them as they waited. In the end, more than 10,000 years of life was condensed into just over 300 postcard life stories. Besides the complicated and beautiful lives of so many people, there are postcard life stories for cats, dogs, a rooster, an apple, a bar of soap, a t-shirt, a chair, and a horse. There are life stories everywhere. Michael Kimball reminds us that it is so difficult to be alive and so wonderful too.

Michael Kimball is the author of five books, including Big Ray (which The Wall Street Journal calls "mesmerizing"), Dear Everybody (which The Believer calls "a curatorial masterpiece"), and US (which Time Out Chicago calls "a simply gorgeous and astonishing book"). His work has been on NPR's All Things Considered and in Vice, as well as The Guardian, BOMB, Prairie Schooner, Post Road, New York Tyrant, etc. His work has been translated into a dozen languages—including Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Korean, and Greek.
