“How fortunate we are that these storytellers were willing to channel their inner memories into these strong and radiant stories.” –Meg Wolitzer, From The Foreword

Carefully selected by the creative minds at The Moth, and adapted to the page to preserve the raw energy of live storytelling, OCCASIONAL MAGIC features voices familiar and new. Alongside Adam Gopnik, Krista Tippett, Andrew Solomon, Rosanne Cash, Ophira Eisenberg, and Wang Ping, storytellers from around the world share times when, in the face of challenging situations, they found moments of beauty, wonder, and clarity, shedding light on their lives and helping them find a path forward.

Praise for Occasional Magic:

"[A] roller coaster of raw emotions…each story is as captivating as the one before it. If the Moth’s live events are full of people gently holding their beating hearts up to the mic in front of a breathless audience, these written adaptations definitely do such sacrifices justice."—Booklist

"Captivating, artfully wrought tales."—Kirkus Reviews

"Full of emotion, humor, and vulnerability, these stories skillfully illustrate and evoke empathy for the human condition." —Library Journal, Starred Reviews
