In October 2011, Jeff Ragsdale, a down-and-out actor and stand-up comedian, posted a flyer around Lower Manhattan asking people to call him if they wanted to talk. He thought he’d get a dozen calls; instead he got hundreds, and then thousands once pictures of the flyer went viral on the Internet. The calls came from all over the country and from as far away as Spain, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Taiwan, and Australia. Jeff spoke to as many people as he could, answering his phone all day long. Here are the conversations, texts, and voicemails of a particular moment in time—a hilarious, dark, intimate portrait of the way we live now.

    " hard to compare this to other books---- an intriguing, somewhat voyeuristic glimpse into the lives of people who reached out to a man whose publicly posted phone number became widely circulated on the internet "

    " The concept seemed interesting but the delivery was awful. Luckily its a very short book, but unfortunately every page is the same. The best part is that I was able to return it for a refund "

    " Bret Easton Ellis said there's never been a book like this before (he was effusively praising it). Agreed. But it still bored me. "

    " Too whiny for me to finish. From the promos, I was expecting some overall narrative about loneliness and the human condition, but there is none, and I ended up feeling more depressed and less hopeful for these people. "
