In "Grace (Eventually)," the bestselling author of "Traveling Mercies" and "Plan B" delivers a poignant, funny, and bittersweet primer of faith, as she comes to discover what it means to be fully alive.
From the Publisher:
"Lamott has chronicled her wacky and (sometimes) wild adventures in faith in...the wonderful Grace (Eventually)." (Chicago Sun-Times)

In Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith, the author of the bestsellers Traveling Mercies and Plan B delivers a poignant, funny, and bittersweet primer of faith, as we come to discover what it means to be fully alive.||
The author presents a collection of essays on the missteps, detours, and roadblocks in her walk of faith and in her discovery of what it means to be fully human and alive.
Annotation:
Essayist Anne Lamott presents still further thoughts on the spiritual path in this collection, which follows her bestsellers TRAVELING MERCIES and PLAN B. Everyday life--its challenges, opportunities, disappointments, and surprises--as well as her character flaws----anger, jealousy, envy--get in the way. But she trusts, and we trust too, that she will find consolation. Just not yet. In the meantime, readers will identify, and note that if she has not yet mastered herself, she has mastered the personal essay form.
Author Bio
Anne Lamott
Anne Lamott's father was a writer. Her first novel, HARD LAUGHTER, published when she was only 23, is about her father's brain tumor and the surgery from which he died. A recovering alcoholic, Lamott lived in relative poverty until the publication of her fifth book, OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS--the story of her son's early years and her struggles as a single mother. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and taught at numerous writing conferences. She has also written a popular column for the on-line magazine Salon.

Praise

"I began with a suspicion that her pieces were going to be too obvious, too sentimental, and then found myself suddenly disarmed by an unexpected turn of phrase, a flash of humor or a psychological insight....In Lamott's best work, humor strengthens whatever serious point she's trying to make....Still, she's never afraid to flail around or sound silly. More important, she manages to suggest that she's your ally, the funny best friend who knows instinctively that you've had these troubles too. And perhaps that's why readers continue to find something fresh in everything she has to say." - Charlotte Innes 04/01/2007
