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.

Julie Metz, Alice Eve Cohen, and Nancy Bachrach
