Listening to Anne Lamott is like sitting across from a close friend as she shares intimate details of her life in clear, pleasing vocal tones. Lamott uses careful pacing and understatement to present her views on faith, which include ideas about personal "missteps, detours, and roadblocks." At times, her voice fills with grit and sorrow as she reminisces about her years of being an alcoholic. Then her voice almost bubbles as she makes self-deprecating jokes about aging and her body image. The listener will feel her sadness and pain but will also join in with her laughter at her eccentric life. Her conversational vocal style and intriguing discussion of personal faith will engage and hold listeners' interest. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
