In a voice somewhere between amusement and astonishment at her own survival for 49 years, Anne Lamott’s latest work applies her earthy wisdom to management skills for an unruly life. With irrepressible candor and offbeat humor, Lamott tackles a world beleaguered by war, terrorism, governmental incompetence, anxiety, hostility, and environmental decay. Using her Christian faith as her North Star, Lamott ponders what Jesus would have done about teenagers and wonders how, as a Christian, she is supposed to love George Bush. Lamott, who wears dreadlocks, a red wristband blessed by the Dalai Lama, and a medal of the Virgin Mary, offers uplifting quotes from Rumi, Jesus, both Testaments, and Buddha. By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, Anne Lamott’s unflinchingly truthful, unique perceptions will open hearts and minds to the possibilities of the Infinite.
