Personal stories from an all-star lineup-immortalized in beautiful, black Sharpie(r).

When Arthur Jones cocreated a reading series centered around ubiquitous Post-Its(r), the series struck a chord. It grew in popularity and was ultimately featured on a "This American Life" live simulcast broadcast across the nation.

Inspired by the series and spanning a wide and weird range of topics from an A-list roster of contributors, "Post-It(r) Note Diaries" captures everyday occurrences from a job interview gone hilariously awry and a nude run-in with a neighbor to hair-raising events like an overnight encounter at Nicholas Cage's house (it's not what you think ), and nearly drowning while trying to paddle across the East River in a homemade canoe. "Post-It(r) Note Diaries" is perfect for NPR addicts and fans of unique graphic favorites like "Postsecret" and "Blankets."

Diarists include: John Hodgman, David Rakoff, Hanna Tinti, Arthur Bradford, Chuck Klosterman, Andrew Solomon, Starlee Kine, Kristen Schaal, Mary Roach and Andrew Bird.
