Praise

Praise for Almost Everything:

“Anne Lamott has a rare talent for making writing look easy… Given the warmth, liveliness and intimacy of her prose, time with one of her books can feel like a visit with a friend.”Wall Street Journal

“Part memoir, part manual and part sermon from the church of Lamott, this satisfying escape points to notes of beauty in our uncertain world.” People

“Like a feminist C.S. Lewis, [Lamott] talks about God, politics and other unmentionables, and gently exhorts her readers, as she does herself, to find joy in a bleak and chaotic world: a leftie guru of optimism.” The New York Times 

“[Lamott] cheers us on with her blend of sobering truth and essential inspiration.”Parade Magazine

“Many are deeply blessed by Ms. Lamott’s down-to-Earth spirituality, her cleverness, her ability to tell a story with a moral, or at least with a sensible point.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Lamott boldly sets out to share . . . she veers from the intensely personal to the philosophical, highlighting some of the ways joy and pain are close companions in life. . . . Anyone reading with an open mind and heart will come away with more than a few nuggets of useful wisdom.” —BookPage


Praise for Anne Lamott and Her Books:

“Lamott is a superb writer. Her voice is one-of-a-kind: deft, folksy, cheerfully hostile. . . . She is witty and funny and smart.” —The Washington Post

“A clarion call to the better angels of our nature.” —Chicago Tribune

“I keep learning a lot from the clear and great Annie Lamott. I think you will, too.” —Gloria Steinem

“Lamott is beloved by legions for her smart, irreverent take on the human condition, filtered through her unique brand of compassionate Christianity and delivered with delicious, self-deprecating wit. Lamott goes even deeper in these essays.” —People

“Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. [Her] real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones . . . perfectly. She is nothing short of miraculous.” —The New Yorker

“Lamott is funny, witty and irreverent. . . . Her basic message is love and forgiveness. . . . Not a bad message for any faith.” —The Denver Post

“Best bathtub read for me would be anything by Anne Lamott. . . . She always makes me laugh and she embraces all the broken bits.” —Andie MacDowell, actress
