Publisher's Summary

Robert Fulghum's new book begins with a question we've all asked ourselves: "What on earth have I done?" As Fulghum finds out, the answer is never easy and, almost always, surprising.

For the last couple of years, Fulghum has been traveling the world, from Seattle to the Moab Desert to Crete, looking for a few fellow travelers interested in thinking along with him as he delights in the unexpected: trick-or-treating with your grandchildren dressed like a large rabbit, pots of daffodils blooming in mid-November, and the friendship one can strike up with someone who doesn't share the same language.

What on Earth Have I Done? is an armchair tour of everyday life as seen by Robert Fulghum, one of America's great essayists, a man who has two feet planted firmly on the earth, one eye on the heavens and, at times, a tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Fulghum writes to his fellow travelers, with a sometimes light heart, about the deep and vexing mysteries of being alive and says, "This is my way of bringing the small boat of my life within speaking distance of yours. Hello."

    "Healing words"

    What a delight this book is, from beginning to end! All of the stories are simple and wonderful; told by the author in his soothing, smiling and knowing voice. Robert Fulghum states in one of his essays that he wishes he could have spent time with his grandfather--I wish Robert Fulghum WAS my grandfather! Instead, I am inspired to look about more closely in my world, to see if I can spot the wonder, humor and softness so often hidden behind the unescapable war, trauma and nonsense which crowd the headlines. If the author is not an official Zen master, he's certainly one in my mind--and my newest hero. I am grateful that I stumbled across this book. Should you, like me, be looking for something to soothe your ragged souls, you will find solace here. A sheer delight in every way!

    Story
    "A huge fan of the author."
    If you could sum up What on Earth Have I Done? in three words, what would they be?

    It is a funny and touching collection of thoughts and stories. I have long been a fan of the author, and this book was an amazing addition to the collection.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish they had hired a narrator. While Mr Fulghum is an incredibly gifted writer it seems like he is reading the stories instead of telling them. He breaks the trend periodically and it is amazing. I wish he would just tell the stories.
