"For sale: baby shoes, never worn." is the entirety of what has been described as a six-word novel, making it an extreme example of what is called flash fiction or sudden fiction.
The autorship of this novel belongs to Ernest Hemingway, american novelist. It centers upon his doing so as the result of a wager between him and other writers, while lunching at a restaurant. Hemingway bet the table ten dollars each that he can craft an entire story in six words.
After the pot was assembled, Hemingway wrote "For sale: baby shoes, never worn" on a napkin, passed this around the table, and collected his winnings.
This project is based on illustrating a spirit of simplicity and significance of different 6-word stories.
