Description
The author of Plan B, Grace (Eventually), and Stitches, Anne Lamott writes here about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. In a message of hope, celebrating the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives, she writes that our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, but they are transformative, changing our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Variously exploring forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, she considers how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost, and how we are amazed at finally being found.

"Thank goodness for Anne Lamott. Her writing style, both unfussy and diaphanous, her congeniality, loopy humor and dogged optimism are balms.... Small Victories is a gem…Surely, when it comes to questions of faith, Lamott is to essay writing what Marilynne Robinson is to fiction. Awesome."—BookPage

"Anne Lamott is practically a household word in the peeling-back-the-soul department. She's utterly disarming. She's hysterically funny. One minute, you're falling off your chair laughing, and the next, you're gasping for air, because Lamott has just unfurled a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know.... Hers is an inimitable mix of irreverence and deep-down holy wisdom. Her wit is so sharp, her synapses fire so quickly, she deftly connects the dots and vaults across the spiritual landscape.... Lamott grounds the holy in the messy, hilarious, madcap adventure that is her life. And she sees the truth so piercingly perceptibly, we're left slack-jawed and wiser in her wake."—Chicago Tribune
