Almost everything

I’ve just finished Almost Everything – Notes on Hope by Anne Lamott. Lamott is a very funny character, probably most famous for Bird By Bird, a book about writing, but really about spirituality too.

She is in AA, is very active in the church, a Californian, a writer both of novels and of a variety of self-help books. She teaches writing. And she’s very funny as you can see from the TED talk above.

They might not always be in the most coherent order, but Almost Everything is crammed full of interesting ideas, rattled out in Lamott’s signature machine-gun style. It’s very thought provoking and I’ll pull out my favourite ideas from the books in the following posts.
