"[In this book] the stories not only maintain their oral integrity but also take on new dimensions, allowing you to ponder a turn of events or to swirl the language around in your head without missing the next part of the story."―David Vecsey, NYTimes.com "The 6th Floor" blog
"Burns, artistic director of the award-winning The Moth Radio Hour, frees stories whetted for a live audience onto the page, proving the richness of great storytelling: that one can gain as much as a member of an audience communally cringing, laughing and weeping, as a reader privately surrendering to the complicity of human experience."―Publishers Weekly
"When I started to read the new collection 'The Moth: 50 True Stories,' [the storytellers'] distinctive voices turned on my audio button. It felt as if they had channeled these stories to me."―Elizabeth Taylor, Chicago Tribune "Editor's Choice"
