Praise for Almost Everything

"Anne Lamott has a rare talent for making writing look easy... Given the warmth, liveliness and intimacy of her prose, time with one of her books can feel like a visit with a friend." --Wall Street Journal "Part memoir, part manual and part sermon from the church of Lamott, this satisfying escape points to notes of beauty in our uncertain world." --People "Like a feminist C.S. Lewis, [Lamott] talks about God, politics and other unmentionables, and gently exhorts her readers, as she does herself, to find joy in a bleak and chaotic world: a leftie guru of optimism." --The New York Times "[Lamott] cheers us on with her blend of sobering truth and essential inspiration."--Parade Magazine "Plenty of us have grown to trust Lamott's spiritual compass. We settle in quickly here, knowing just around the next sentence she might pry open our heart, and pack in truths we will mull long after we've put down her pages... Again and again, Lamott steers us in and out of the canyons and potholes of despair." --Chicago Tribune

"By the time you finish Almost Everything: Notes on Hope by Anne Lamott, you might find yourself just a little bit changed as a person. In the book, she candidly discusses her journey to finding hope, and it's full of beautiful pieces of advice that you'll find yourself highlighting on your Kindle over and over again." --PopSugar, Recommended Books of 2018 "Many are deeply blessed by Ms. Lamott's down-to-Earth spirituality, her cleverness, her ability to tell a story with a moral, or at least with a sensible point." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "That is what the wise and wonderful Anne Lamott considers with uncommon self-awareness and generosity of insight throughout Almost Everything: Notes on Hope-- the small, enormously soul-salving book that gave us Lamott on love, despair, and our capacity for change." --Brain Pickings

"Lamott boldly sets out to share . . . she veers from the intensely personal to the philosophical, highlighting some of the ways joy and pain are close companions in life. . . . Anyone reading with an open mind and heart will come away with more than a few nuggets of useful wisdom." --BookPage "Anne Lamott is our wickedly funny, self-deprecating, insightful guardian angel, and she's given us the gift of hope" --Pasadena Star News

Praise for Anne Lamott and Her Books: "Lamott is a superb writer. Her voice is one-of-a-kind: deft, folksy, cheerfully hostile. . . . She is witty and funny and smart." --The Washington Post "A clarion call to the better angels of our nature." --Chicago Tribune
"I keep learning a lot from the clear and great Annie Lamott. I think you will, too." --Gloria Steinem "Lamott is beloved by legions for her smart, irreverent take on the human condition, filtered through her unique brand of compassionate Christianity and delivered with delicious, self-deprecating wit. Lamott goes even deeper in these essays." --People "Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. [Her] real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones . . . perfectly. She is nothing short of miraculous." --The New Yorker "Lamott is funny, witty and irreverent. . . . Her basic message is love and forgiveness. . . . Not a bad message for any faith." --The Denver Post "Best bathtub read for me would be anything by Anne Lamott. . . . She always makes me laugh and she embraces all the broken bits." --Andie MacDowell, actress
