Strangers Have the Best Candy

By Margaret Meps Schulte

General non-fiction, Personal growth, Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


"I collect strangers the way a squirrel collects nuts," says Margaret Meps Schulte. In her new book, she has cast caution to the wind, striking up conversations with laughing, crying, boozing, and topless strangers all over the USA and beyond. Their stories, and the resulting hijinks and friendships, are her candy, her rewards for breaking the rules about talking to strangers. Schulte's powerful narrative brings unlikely real people into the light, from Betty, the vivacious mayor of a small town in Newfoundland, to Boopsie, a skinny-dipping breast cancer survivor. The book features 125 pen-and-ink doodles, illustrations, and portraits from her chance encounters. These humorous, heartwarming tales will inspire readers of all ages to talk to strangers and meet new people. Schulte shows us how to set aside fear and judgment to look for connection and serendipity in our own lives. Internationally-acclaimed winner of the 2014 Diagram Prize.
