SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED A Journal of My Son's First Son

by | Read by Anne Lamott, Sam Lamott

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

With self-reflective observations and comments from her thoughtful son, Lamott delivers the latest adventure in her heart-grabbing journey through life. Diary entries, emails, and conversations describe how she and her 19-year-old son embraced an unexpected baby and adjusted to life with a young mother who had her own agenda, her own family. Neither author reads with the emotional projection and vocal appeal that this writing deserves. But what they say and how they grew during that year are so rewarding that you can’t help but love and admire them. They show how the impact of unplanned events and relationships can be softened by the miracle of a new life. It’s welcome encouragement that any lovable neurotic can bob and weave his or her way through the midlife conflicts that such events can provoke.
