Author(s): Anne Lamott
From the bestselling author of "Stitches "and "Help, Thanks, Wow "comes her long-awaited collection of new and selected essays on hope, joy, and grace. Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It's an approach that has become her trademark. Now in "Small Victories," Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us--our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found. Profound and hilarious, honest and unexpected, the stories in "Small Victories "are proof that the human spirit is irrepressible.
Anne Lamott is the author of the "New York Times "bestsellers "Stitches"; "Help, Thanks, Wow"; "Some Assembly Required"; "Grace (Eventually)"; "Plan B"; and "Traveling Mercies," as well as several novels, including "Imperfect Birds "and "Rosie." A past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame, she lives in Northern California.
