Found: People Watching on Paper

Author Davy Rothbart created a cult-like following with his nationally bestselling, wildly popular Found series. Found phenomenon has been praised by everyone from David Letterman and Ira Glass to The New Yorker and U.S. News and World Report. Now Davy returns with Requiem for a Paper Bag: Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the Best Lost, Tossed, and Found Items from Around the World.

 In Requiem for a Paper Bag, a fresh twist on the renowned Found Books, Davy has asked an intriguing mix of well known writers, comedians, musicians, and celebrities as well as civilian fans of the Found series, to share essays about the most fascinating finds from their own lives or stories inspired by finds from the Found books and magazines. A few of the many contributors include Seth Rogen, Dave Eggers, Paulo Coelho, Chuck Klosterman, Susan Orlean, and Frank Warren (Post Secret).
