Whether they are found on buses, at stores, in restaurants, waiting rooms, parking lots, or even prison yards, these items give readers an uncensored, poignant, and often hilarious peek into other people's lives. By collecting them in FOUND MAGAZINE, Davy Rothbart has bewitched the many readers into an army of sharp-eyed finders.
FOUND is full of the latest and greatest of these finds, arranged in the style of the magazine, laying bare the tantalizing tales to be discovered in the trash we toss. By turns heartbreaking and hysterically funny, FOUND is a mesmerizing tribute to everyday life and our eternal curiosity about our fellow human beings.

'I love FOUND.' -Drew Barrymore
'Writers resent FOUND. How would you feel if you spent months and years slaving over stories when these talented rubberneckers cant's seem to walk their dogs without tripping over one teensy epic after another? No fair!' -Sarah Vowell
