Six words can say so much. Even about love: a big deal.
Clearly, this lowly blogger has a way to go before earning a black-belt in brevity
from Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, the founders of the Six-Word Memoirs blog. But that's OK – they've already accrued enough pithy, often profound, proclamations
of the heart to publish a whole book.
They'll be at the Brookline Booksmith on Feb. 4 to promote and discuss their laconic labor of love, "Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Loss." Contributions come from authors like Elizabeth Gilbert to ordinary folks with a touch for the terse. But don't let size fool you: These tiny sentences pack an enormous punch.
