Book Synopsis



NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - An inspiring and entertaining collection of unforgettable true stories about finding unexpected beauty in life's transitions--from Lin-Manuel Miranda, Elizabeth Gilbert, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and many more.

"The Moth taught me how to be vulnerable, how to take my time, and how to listen to someone else's story and share in their moments of triumph, laughter, or, yes, sometimes embarrassment with an open heart."--Mike Birbiglia, from the Foreword

An international rescue mission for Paddington Bear. A family matriarch running numbers in Detroit. An epic Lucha Libre showdown in Mexico City. A beach vacation spent looking for the Kennedys. Storytellers from around the world share times they found real beauty in the moments when their lives changed forever--for better or for worse.

Carefully selected by the creative minds at The Moth and adapted to the page to preserve the raw energy of stories told live, on stage, and without notes, A Point of Beauty features voices familiar and new. This collection offers a shared message: If we look closely enough, we can find power in strengthening frayed bonds but also in having the courage to walk away from things that no longer feed our spirit. Through these storytellers' passion and their hope, they teach us all about what's worth holding on to: our relationships with those we love the most, our understanding of ourselves, and--of course--gathering together to tell and listen to our stories.

"A collection well worth exploring, whether straight through or dropping in randomly. A good choice for public-library shelves."--Booklist
