From her unexpected encounter with Rachel Maddow to her UFO experience in the desert of New Mexico, from a 2nd honeymoon reunion in Paris with a husband she hadn't seen in 40 years to recipes for New Orleans BBQ'ed Shrimp and a Fresh Strawberry Torte from The Log Lady on the original Twin Peaks, from carrying a vial of Nitroglycerin in a souped-up Chevy to Middle School to her mother kicking up a storm at her own funeral, from instructions on how to keep a kitchen journal, how to find one recipe among 1000 saved recipes, to politics, Most Likely to Succeed is genre-bending and unabashed.
These super short true stories that prove life can be stranger than fiction. There is hilarity and grief, good food, love, and near misses, things that mystify, things that make us cry. Everyone's life is a wild ride, but many people would at least hesitate to reveal as much as is exposed in these personal stories. Pulitzer says, "What have I got to lose, it's almost over anyway."
Her other collection of illustrated short shorts, Little Theater, is fiction. Most Likely to Succeed and Little Theater are picture books for adults. Filled with the award-winning artist's original illustrations, each story can be enjoyed start to finish in a minute or two, a break from the constant digital incoming.
