"I wish grace and healing were more abracadabra kinds of things," she writes in one of her essays, "that delicate silver bells would ring to announce grace's arrival. But no, it's clog and slog and scootch, on the floor, in silence, in the dark."
Whether she's writing about her unsuccessful efforts to get her money back from an obstinate carpet salesman, grappling with the tectonic shifts in her relationship with her son as he matures, trying to maintain her faith and humor during politically challenging times, or helping a close friend die with dignity, Lamott seeks out both the divinity and the humanity in herself and everything around her. Throughout these essays, she writes of her struggle to find the essence of her faith, which she uncovers in the unlikeliest places. By turns insightful and hilarious, pointed and poignant, Grace (Eventually) is Anne Lamott at her perceptive and irreverent best.

I love this book. Anne is so real. She's made mistakes, she doesn't try to hide. She talks about life just as it is, without masking anything. Most of the stories made me laugh till I cried! She is not preachy - she just presents it as she sees it. Since it is read by her also, I think it helps deliver the book in the tone that it was intended. By the time I finished hearing the book I felt like I had a new best friend! Thanks Anne!!!!

entire book slams non-liberals, dwells on politics
I love AL's writing to no end, and tho I don't agree with many of her political stances, I have enjoyed many of her other books. This one, however, is particularly heavy into politics and controversial issues (esp justifying her abortions and involvement in euthanasia and her hatred of political figures). She takes angry, strong left approaches in a way that is not quite merciful or graceful, but rather, is resentful/demeaning to other views. I was disappointed in the hypocrisy of this book
