Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Found is a quirky lens into the flotsam and jetsam of humanity." — Chicago Tribune

"Found is as unexpected as a tumbleweed." — The New Yorker

"I love Found! The tales in this book prove that life is full of surprises; when you keep your eyes on the ground, you never know what you're gonna find!" — Drew Barrymore

"Found is a trash picker's and anthropologist's dream come true!" — Los Angeles Times

"Found is a powerful fix for thinking voyeurs!" — The Boston Globe

"Pick up a copy of Found and be instantly utterly fascinated." — The Guardian (UK)

Library Journal

With two national best sellers (Found and Found II), a magazine of the same name and accompanying web site, and a road show across America already in place, Rothbart adds this collection of 67 pieces submitted by writers, musicians, and friends. Rothbart invited contributors-including such well-known figures as comedian Andy Samberg, musician Andrew Bird, and writers Tom Robbins, Susan Orlean, Dave Eggers, and Paulo Coelho-to share their finds or to include a short piece of fiction based on a find. Bich Minh Nguyen (Stealing Buddha's Dinner) found a photograph of her mother, whom she'd never met; Samberg found a ten-dollar bill with an obscenity written on it; Orlean found the idea for a book about orchids. Various selections are fascinating, disturbing, funny, poetic, graphic, personal, illuminating, and combinations of these. Clearly, Rothbart's idea has found a following, and his book is a keeper.
—Anthony Pucci
