I Thought My Father Was God: And Other True Tales from NPR's National Story Project written by Paul Auster

 

I Thought My Father Was God: And Other True Tales from NPR's National Story Project written by Paul Auster

Synopsis:

A truly captivating collection of 180 real stories written by NPR radio listeners—stories that, in editor Paul Auster's words, defy "our expectations about the world and reveal[ed] the mysterious and unknowable forces at work in our lives."

Two years ago, on National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered," Auster introduced the National Story Project. In an attempt "to put together an archive of facts, a museum of American reality," he welcomed anyone to submit a story, following two rules: it must be true and it must be short. This book collects 179 stories-Auster calls them "reports from the frontlines of personal experience"-picked from over 4,000 entries. There is the unassuming yet beautiful portrait of a summer afternoon in a 1960s Manhattan neighborhood; the story of a man given leave after fifteen years in prison to attend his grandmother's funeral; and a homeless woman's account of her living situation. There are impossible coincidences, eerie omens and visions, and tales of love and war and family and death.
