A wonderful new book…. Some [stories] are heartbreakingly sad; some laugh-out-loud funny; some momentous and tragic; almost all of them resonant or surprising. They are stories that attest to the startling varieties and travails of human experience, and the shared threads of love, loss, fear and kindness that connect us…. The stories here…have translated seamlessly to the page. Though they are all relatively short…most possess a remarkable emotional depth and sincerity…. They are…closely focused, finely tuned narratives that have the force of an epiphany, while opening out to disclose the panoramic vistas of one person’s life or the shockingly disparate worlds they have inhabited or traversed.”
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

All These Wonders is replete with wondrous true stories of loves, losses, rerouted dreams, and existential crises of nearly every unsugarcoated flavor.”
Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

“All These Wonders is divided into seven expertly curated chapters. The effect is an anthology of seven Mainstage shows, averaging six stories per show. Each juxtaposes sensational stories by famous names (Ishmael Beah, John Turturro, Tig Notaro, Louis C.K.) with those by relatively unknown storytellers, whose narratives, quite often, deliver the biggest emotional punches.”
Megan Labrise, Kirkus Reviews

“The Moth’s 20-year retrospective contains all the hope, sadness, triumphs, and tribulations that have defined the pioneering live reading series since its modest debut in 1997…. Overall, the two decades of the Moth remain as entertaining and powerful off-stage as they were onstage.” 
—Kirkus Reviews

“[The stories] are all arresting tales.”
—Buffalo News (Editor’s Choice)

“New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket.” 
—Wall Street Journal
