The Best of Tall Tales is a collection of first-person, non-fiction short stories curated from the lives of real people. These stories are adapted from the Tall Tales live storytelling show, India’s longest-running live true storytelling event series that has featured thousands of submissions and hundreds of stories told live. These twenty are some of the best of the best. The storytellers in this collection bare their souls, share their inner-most desires, and articulate facing their fears. It’s a one of a kind collection that will leave you laughing one second and crying the next. One story talks about the ups and downs of being Bollywood extra; another takes you into the life of a fortune teller; and yet another shows you the terror of stalking. These true short stories, some of the best that Tall Tales has ever featured, will leave you shocked and inspired. They don’t push just one button-they push all your buttons. And that’s the common thread among all the short stories you’ll read in this book.
What do these stories, have in common? They’re born from deep honesty, which might be the most important ingredient in a great story. Comic stories, scary stories, romantic stories, stories on social justice-they all go from interesting to unforgettable in the hands of Tall Tales.
Everyone has at least one great story. What’s yours?
