I loved this book. My second favorite (after Traveling Mercies). A wonderful, sweet, sad, real story about being a single mom unexpectedly. She writes so beautifully about God, alcoholism, motherhood, friends and family. It is just an amazing book!
Excellent! This is a great book to help you while in the trenches of new motherhood, or to look back after you've made it out. Anne Lamott captures her feeling so beautifully with words, bringing scenes right to life in your mind's eye. Amazing writing. I laughed my head off and cried till I needed tissue. A captivating read.
So funny! Really rings true for anyone with a new baby. I received it at my baby shower and enjoyed it very much.
Anne Lamott has the guts to write what no one else does--she looks her own shortcomings and mistakes as a first time mom straight in the face and refuses to flinch. What results is illuminating and real beyond comparison. Plus, she's hilarious. I laughed out loud so often my husband was convinced I was off my rocker for real this time. Incredibly enjoyable, insightful, and worth every second.
wonderfully funny, honest take on life by an author who became a single parent at 35. Great stuff!
