I discovered this book the other day and thought it an interesting concept. Love in six precious words. Summing up a life long passion or trauma so succinctly may seem like an abomination, but it actually dates back to the 1920's, when Ernest Hemingway bet his colleagues that he could write a complete short story in just six words. The result,
"For Sale: Baby Shoes. Never Worn."
He reportedly called that his best work.
