Three Short Women - Three Tall (True) Tales

Three memoirists meet on a panel and discover they have plenty in common. For one thing, they are all short. And they have each written compelling, highly praised memoirs about a central role in a woman's life – daughter, lover, or mother – like three acts in a play. What do they do once they find each other? They get an act together and take it on the road: three stories that are so improbable they could only be true, from three women who've found meaning and humor in chaos.

Dazzling. A darkly comedic style that recalls David Sedaris.
-San Francisco Chronicle

Bachrach is one of the funniest writers I've ever read, period. Make room on the shelf next to Sedaris, Eggers, Wilsey.
-Alexandra Fuller


Poignant, powerful, and absolutely riveting.
-Chris Bohjalian, author of Midwives

[Metz] brings refreshing candor to a startling tale.
-Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Everything we love in a book-profound, honest,
hilarious, humane, surprising.

-Anne Lamott, Salon.com Best Books of 2009

Her darkly hilarious memoir is an unexpected bundle of joy.
-O, The Oprah Magazine

Three stories that are so improbable, they could only be true.
