Half about writing, half about the everyday.
on 17 February 2014
If you can stand Lamott's religiosity and folksey, doe-eyed sentiments, you may just find a few gems inside. There really are some useful ideas for approaching the writing task, and some anecdotes worth reflecting on. There are a few poignant moments amongst the schmaltzy ones. Overall I'd say this book is a curious mix of the odd and mundane; half biography, half do-it-yourself writer's manual.
