I was distracted and annoyed by her continual railing at George Bush. I'm not a fan of the current administration either but I seem to have made peace with it better than the author. Or I'm apathetic. If the essay is about his administration's flaws and foibles fine, but she dropped references to it into themes where it seemed out of context. Perhaps I was disappointed to see one of my favorite people (Lamott) cursing the darkness and trying vainly to light a candle. So unlike her. But don't let her despair over an unjust war keep you from reading this book. There are still some gems in it.

Another wonderful book from Anne Lamont. Her humor, brutal honesty and very personal way of looking at her faith make the rest of us open our minds to another way of being a person of faith. You don't want to miss this if you have teenagers. There is some Bush-bashing here, but don't let that stop you. I promise you will never forget her description of the disciples on the day after the crucifixion of Jesus. Profane, yes; but dead-on.

I have read two of Anne Lamott's book previously and enjoyed them immensely. Unhappily, she seems to have taken a political path in her life that reflects itself in this book. I think it's a bit strange to blame all of Republican ex-presidents and especially George W. Bush for all of the evil feelings in the world. She even blames them for her own psychological & emotional problems. I couldn't finish the book and threw it in the trash. Ms. Lamott has slipped over the edge and can no longer be trusted to write with depth as she did before. Sad.
