The sharp, funny, and heartfelt follow-up to her bestselling Plan B, Anne Lamott's newest collection is a personal exploration of the faith and grace all around us.

In Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith, Lamott examines the ways we're caught in life's most daunting predicaments: love, mothering, work, politics, and maybe toughest of all, evolving from who we are to who we were meant to be. This is a complicated process for most of us, and Lamott turns her wit and honesty inward to describe her own intimate, bumpy, and unconventional road to grace and faith.

“I wish grace and healing were more abracadabra kinds of things," she writes in one of her essays, "that delicate silver bells would ring to announce grace's arrival. But no, it's clog and slog and scootch, on the floor, in silence, in the dark.”

Whether she's writing about her unsuccessful efforts to get her money back from an obstinate carpet salesman, grappling with the tectonic shifts in her relationship with her son as he matures, trying to maintain her faith and humor during politically challenging times, or helping a close friend die with dignity, Lamott seeks out both the divinity and the humanity in herself and everything around her. Throughout these essays, she writes of her struggle to find the essence of her faith, which she uncovers in the unlikeliest places. By turns insightful and hilarious, pointed and poignant, Grace (Eventually) is Anne Lamott at her perceptive and irreverent best.

    " I can only count this as 1/2 in my book total. I honestly can't take it anymore. I'm sure there is a message about faith in there somewhere, but Lamott can't seem to get off her soap box about every conservative politician she can name. I ended my pursuits on her thoughts on faith when she said something about trying to blame the rain on President Bush. She went to great lengths in a previous chapter to explain how she let go of her hatred of him, but I suspect she might want to revisit that again. Obviously, we don't have similar views on politics and I often enjoy hearing other perspectives, but not when it is done with such little respect and so much hate. Lets see if Lee Childs can entertain me with an exciting mystery. "

    " Hmm, I expected to love this, as I had read other Anne Lamott stuff, but I'm thinking maybe it's her novels I should be reading? It was too much of her personal anxiety ticker tape for me; maybe I need to be a more gracious person to really enjoy this. "

    " This is the second time I've read this book, but the first time approaching it spiritually. Even better than I first thought. "

    " Pleasant enough read. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and sometimes thought provoking. "
