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.”
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.
