PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God by Frank Warren

Just as on the PostSecret blog, Confessions on Life, Death, and God features a number of postcards filled with people's carefully guarded secrets. Some of them are funny; some of them are heartbreaking. There are secrets that you might immediately identify with; there are secrets where you can't imagine someone actually living like that. There were ones that made me smile and ones that made me tear up. Based on the title, I expected it to be a lot more about 'religion' specifically than it actually was. The secrets are more closely connected through identity and spirituality. If you've read the other PostSecret books (or the website), this will be more of what you're familiar with, but if they're new to you, the layout of this book (a single postcard per page) makes it a good one to dip into.

Find it at IndieBound.
