In Some Assembly Required, Anne Lamott enters a new and unexpected chapter of her own life: grandmotherhood.

Stunned to learn that her son, Sam, is about to become a father at nineteen, Lamott begins a journal about the first year of her grandson Jax's life.

In careful and often hilarious detail, Lamott and Sam-about whom she first wrote so movingly in Operating Instructions-struggle to balance their changing roles with the demands of college and work, as they both forge new relationships with Jax's mother, who has her own ideas about how to raise a child. Lamott writes about the complex feelings that Jax fosters in her, recalling her own experiences with Sam when she was a single mother. Over the course of the year, the rhythms of life, death, family, and friends unfold in surprising and joyful ways.

By turns poignant and funny, honest and touching, Some Assembly Required is the true story of how the birth of a baby changes a family-as this book will change everyone who reads it.

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

"Lamott's great appeal lies in her security in exposing her insecurities, her refreshing irreverence even about her reverence, and her ease in tossing off hilariously offbeat observations. . . .|It's all on display in abundance in SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED." - Heller McAlpin 03/29/2012
