From the best-selling author of Stitches and Help, Thanks, Wow comes her long-awaited collection of new and selected essays on hope, joy, and grace.
Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It's an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us - our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found.
Profound and hilarious, honest and unexpected, the stories in Small Victories are proof that the human spirit is irrepressible.

Best Book Anne has ever done.
I love memoirs read by those who wrote it and lived it. Anne is incredible at this.
This book will have you laugh out loud, cry tears of sadness, and leave you with a sense of the profound grace of God in our lives and relationships.
Anne intentionally does not "ham it up," but reads the script of her life and shares her heart with such warmth and honesty that it takes your breath away, She is a professional writer, not a professional reader, so I only give her 4 stars for performance.But she is still great.
I would not do a film of this book. Films are not the evolutionary goal of writing books.
I do not agree with Anne in her politics at all. As one person said,"I find them abhorrent." But I do not have to agree with Anne to love her. And I do. I have listened to or read almost all of her books. This one I have enjoyed the most. If you have followed Anne and thought her better days were behind her,,,,well you are so wrong, This book is her best, most honest, enjoyable and uplifting book yet.
