When Paul Auster was asked to join NPR's Weekend All Things Considered program to tell stories, he turned the proposition on its head: he would let the stories come to him. He invited listeners to submit brief, true-life anecdotes about events that touched their lives. And so the National Story Project was born. just over a year old, it's one of NPR's most popular features. The response has been so overwhelming, with more than 4,000 stories submitted so far, that Auster decided to cull the top works and make them available in a book -- and now this audio tape. His selections -- hilarious blunders, wrenching coincidences, brushes with death, miraculous encounters, improbable ironies -- come from people of all ages and walks of life. This one-of-a-kind collection is a testament to the power of storytelling that offers a glimpse into the American soul. By turns poignant, nostalgic, funny and strange, it is an audiobook to be treasured and shared for years to come.… (lisätietoja)

I picked this book up at a library sale- thinking from the title that it would be a novel or true story about a child who thought his/her father was God. I hadn't noticed that the rest of the title, written in smaller print on the cover, And Other True Tales From NPR's National Story Project was really what this book was- a collection of short, true stories from listeners of Paul Auster's interview on the radio. He had asked listeners to send in their stories; of strange coincidences, animals, memories, reflections on the war, all kinds of topics. And so this book was the result- a wonderful compilation of anecdotes. Some were far better than others. Perhaps my least favorite was a 2 page meditation on the joys of a martini 😥 But others was more engaging and endearing. There were several stories about childhood friends and enemies and older people. And many about animals, travels, jobs. As another reviewer noted, this is a great book to bring with you if you're going to be waiting for something, like at a bus station or waiting room, or to pick up before bed-then you won't mind being interrupted too much b/c the stories are short. Wonderful little find here. ( )

You'd think that this would be a collection of a wide variety of stories, a 'tossed salad' or experiences and beliefs & attitudes. ?Well, not so much. ?áAfter all, most contributors are fans of NPR. ?áAnd they are folks who think they have a story to tell. ?áAnd then Auster selects the ones he likes best. ?áSo, after awhile they start to sound much the same.... ?áI skipped Death and Dreams. ?áI think I found the first section, Animals, most interesting, and the last, Meditations, second most. ?á

Also, these are supposed to be true. ?áWell, even the ones that are most intentionally so, aren't likely to be. ?áMemory plays incredible tricks on us. ?áAnd all the coincidences, like (made-up example:) like losing a bracelet on a beach in Delaware the year your childhood friend had the mumps and was quarantined and so couldn't join you there, and decades later meeting the friend at a flea-market as you both were looking at a table of junk jewelry, and there's your old bracelet.... well, there's lots of nonsense like that in the book. ?áNot saying it's never happened, but that story concept only needed to be included a couple of times. ?áAnd did Auster do anything to verify the veracity of these vignettes? ?á

Anyway, Early Arithmetic" by Sandra Waller is worth getting the book from your library to read. ?áI'm off to see if she's written anything else. ?áEven if it's just a blog, I wanna read it." ( )

Mr. Auster collected stories from around the nation on the theme of "brief, true-life anecdotes about events that touched their lives." It's been years since I listened to it, and so my ranking is based on a faded memory. I remember some story about a man thinking he was going to get shot and then he didn't. The audiobook's title is what sold me. I realized sometime in my twenties that my feelings toward God were based on a child's (i.e., me) perception of his parents. God never bought me an ice cream cone after swimming lessons, but my parents did teach me to be grateful for the beauty around me. ( )

Like any number of books on my shelves, it seemed, at the time to be a "good one to buy". despite having had it for way over 10 years, I've yet to start it to any great extent. The first time I dipped into it, I was mildly disappointed, but think i might now have a different view on the subject
