Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Help, Thanks, Wow comes an honest, funny book about how to make sense of life's chaos.
What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to what's truly important when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?
These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamott's captivating follow-up to her New York Times best-selling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book, Lamott explores how and where we find meaning in our modern, frantic age, especially after personal and public devastation; how we recapture peace and balance after loss; and how we locate our spiritual identities in these frazzled times. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time. It's in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth and humanity.

Most Helpful

Surprisingly, Ms. Lamott is weak as a narrator.

Would you consider the audio edition of Stitches to be better than the print version?

No.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Stitches?

I can't remember much other than how surprised I was at Ms. Lamott's narration style.


What didn’t you like about Anne Lamott’s performance?

She is among the most uninspired and uninspiring narrators I have experienced. Her monotone and too rapid narration takes all the life out of her beautiful prose. It was as if she just wanted to get through it as fast and with as little effort as possible.


Any additional comments?

A fine narrator would have made this fine collection of exquisitely written and inspiring stories a joy to experience.

Emotional B-12 shot.

Anne and my dogs keep me afloat. Love it that she narrates her own books.
