The collection, which began as a response to Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing, metamorphosed into witty, poetic responses to famous epigraphs and quotations. Built upon the words of others--from Leonardo da Vinci to Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood to Jimmy Kimmel--the resulting pieces explore veganism, sex, parenting, death, and Coachella.
