A constant pick-me-up (in both senses of the phrase),

This review is from: I Thought My Father Was God: And Other True Tales from NPR's National Story Project (Hardcover)
This book is filled with hundreds of vignettes--some funny and some moving, but almost every one interesting (and NOT saccharine as I sort of expected them to be). I pick it up when I walk by it, read one, and feel re-connected and less numb. Give this to someone you know who's tired (it's easy reading) or sad or disconnected from daily reading or daily life. It revives the reader. Great stories. I hope NPR does another one.
