Summary
  • Despair and uncertainty surround us, but even when life is at its bleakest-- when we are, as Lamott puts it, "doomed, stunned, exhausted, and over-caffeinated"-- the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand. In this book, she calls for each of us to rediscover the nuggets of hope and wisdom that are buried within us that can make life sweeter than we ever imagined. -- adapted from back cover
  • "I am stockpiling antibiotics for the apocalypse, even as I await the blossoming of paperwhites on the windowsill in the kitchen," Anne Lamott admits at the beginning of Almost Everything. Despair and uncertainty surround us: in the headlines, in our families, and in ourselves. But even when life is at its bleakest--when everything makes us feel, as Lamott puts it, "doomed, stunned, exhausted, and overly caffeinated" --the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand. "All truth is paradox," Lamott writes, "and this turns out to be a reason for hope. If you arrive at a place in life that is miserable, it will change." That is the time when we must pledge, she says, "not to give up, but to do what Wendell Barry wrote: 'Be joyful, though you have considered all the facts.'" Lamott calls for all of us to rediscover the nuggets of hope and wisdom that are buried in us that will make tomorrow better than today. Divided into short chapters that explore life's essential truths as she sees them-- "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes. Including you" --Lamott pinpoints these moments of insight and shines an encouraging light forward. Candid and funny, insightful and caring, Almost Everything is the book of hope we need and that only Anne Lamott can write
