Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man's opportunity to edit his life as if her were a character in a movie.

Years after writing his best-selling memoir, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another.

But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don's life for film--changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative--the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.

Synopsis:

What if you could turn your life into a great story?

When two filmmakers worked with Donald Miller to edit his bestselling book Blue Like Jazz for the Hollywood screen, they changed the events of his life to make them more exciting. When he asked why, they kindly explained that his real life was too boring! While watching the movie version of his memoir take shape, Don realized the same principles that guide professional storytellers could work in directing a person's daily experiences. In Let Story Guide You, Donald Miller undertakes a humorous and revealing journey as he edits his life into a purposeful and meaningful experience. And in his trademark style, he invites readers into their own process of looking at life through the lens of what makes for a memorable and satisfying story.
