The Moth is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art of storytelling. They hold events nationwide where average people stand up and tell true tales of ordinary life–some hilarious, some harrowing.

Now the popular storytelling series is bringing its stories to bookstores. The Moth Book is a collection of 50 stories selected from The Moth’s vast archive. From stories about a man who woke up dying in a hospital (you can read this entire story for free online), to stories about a guy describing what life is like in prison, each story is different and equally captivating.
