“Anne Lamott is my Oprah.” —Chicago Tribune
From the bestselling author of Dusk, Night, Dawn and Help, Thanks, Wow, a joyful celebration of love
Love is often hard, ignored, or hilarious, Anne Lamott writes in Somehow: Thoughts on Love. It is not always the easiest choice, she tells us, but it is always the right one.
In her twentieth book, Lamott explores the transformative power of love in our lives: how it surprises us, forces us to confront uncomfortable truths, reminds us of our humanity, and guides us forward. “Love just won’t be pinned down,” she says. It is “our very atmosphere” and lies at the heart of who we are -- creatures of love. She explores the unexpected love for a partner later in life. The bruised (and bruising) love for a child who disappoints, even frightens. The sustaining love among a group of sinners, for a community in transition, in the wider world. The lessons she underscores are that love enlightens as it educates, comforts as it energizes, sustains as it surprises.
In Somehow, Lamott draws from her own experience to delineate the intimate and elemental ways love buttresses us in the face of despair as it galvanizes us to believe that tomorrow will be better than today. Full of the compassion and humanity that have made her beloved by millions of readers, Somehow is classic Anne Lamott: funny, warm, and wise.
