The Moment

BUY: Amazon.com

The turning points, revelations, epiphanies, dramatic changes, the opening or closing of a door—in a life, a career, a love—can occur in a single glorious, terrible, unpredictable, serendipitous, crucial, calamitous, chaotic, amazing . . . Moment.

The Moment: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure (Harper Perennial) starts in the middle of blazing fire and ends in Disneyland. In between are 125 stories about opportunities, serendipities, epiphanies and calamities that had a profound impact on a life. Stories come from bestselling authors Jennifer Egan, Dave Eggers and Elizabeth Gilbert; musicians Melissa Etheridge and Judy Collins; 100-year-old journalism legend Ruth Gruber; and many people published for the first time anywhere, who, like all of us, have a life-changing story.
