9780062386878: What's Your Story?: True Experiences from Complete Strangers (The Strangers Project)

In the vein of PostSecret comes this emotionally addictive and thrilling look at people's deepest thoughts--some tragic, some funny, some adventurous--told anonymously and in their own handwriting.

The world is not made up of atoms; it is composed of tiny stories. And everyone has a story.

In 2009 in an Ann Arbor coffeehouse, Brandon Doman began asking passersby to share a story with him. Providing paper, pens, and clipboards, his only criteria was that the story had to be true. Doman then displayed selected stories on his website strangersproject.com. Astonishing in their honesty, intimate, powerful, sometimes chilling, and thoroughly addictive, the stories became an Internet hit. Over the past five years, Doman's personal passion project--10,000 stories strong and growing--has continued to engage strangers of all ages and backgrounds and has transformed into a powerful movement of readers and storytellers who use the project's anonymity as a gateway to reflect, rejoice, heal, and connect through words.

Now, Doman has carefully chosen 200 stories that capture the essence of The Strangers Project. Introduced by Doman, the stories convey the range of human experience, from the humorous to the heartbreaking to the profound, and are arranged to mirror the common encounters that happen between strangers every day.

A celebration of human curiosity and our need for connection, What's Your Story? opens us to new possibilities and provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of others with one simple question: "What's your story?"

From the Back Cover:

Everyone has a story to share. What's yours?

In 2009, Brandon Doman, who has always been curious about the people with whom we share our world, sat at a local coffeehouse and decided to ask passersby a simple question: "What's your story?"

Providing only paper and pens, Doman created an exploratory space that instantly intrigued people to share their stories anonymously. Now, more than 10,000 stories later, the Strangers Project has become a momentous movement, engaging strangers of all ages and backgrounds to reflect, rejoice, heal, and connect through words.

Published here for the first time, What's Your Story? showcases a selection of two hundred stories from the Strangers Project. Equal parts heartbreaking and humorous, this moving compendium lays bare our universal truths, desires, and sufferings, and illustrates the emotional power of storytelling and our shared humanity. To complete this beautiful collage of stories, a blank page is included at the end for readers to add their own personal story.

With more than fifty color photographs and illustrations
