Wandering lonely through the snow streets of New York
I stumbled on a thrift store that sold postcards by the yard
I bought a mile and shipped them home so I could read
Ten thousand ten-word tragedies, the lives these strangers lead
To remind myself the things I need

Inspired by Frank Turner and his songs—especially that evocative verse from Mittens—the editors were delighted to learn that he really did find that box of postcards in a New York thrift store.  Frank was kind enough to send us the box, and from it we chose a series of postcards and forwarded them to the writers in this book.  Gaining inspiration from the postcards and their 'ten word tragedies', the contributors wrote an amazingly eclectic selection of tales—moving, funny, horrific, bizarre, and delightful, these are the lives these strangers lead.

Really good read!

I bought this book after seeing it advertised on a Frank Turner Facebook group. It’s a really good read so far and the short stories are very well rounded. Very happy to receive the 4/100 book, signed by the authors etc. Thank you very much and congrats on having such a brilliant book!
