"Anne Lamott writes about community, family and faith in essays that are wise, irreverent, funny and poignant - a style that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott has once again written a brilliant and insightful book that offers a message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardships and pain may be small, they may be infrequent, but they keep us going and they often come from the most unexpected places: within ourselves. Lamott shows how we can forgive thoughtless family members; spotlights the value of turning toward love even in the most hopeless situations (the death of a loved one, a cancer diagnosis), and shows how to find the joy in getting lost in traffic while racing to the aid of a sick friend. Insightful and irreverent, the stories in Small Victories are proof that the human spirit is resilient and irrepressible"--

This is a book by a Christian author which I, as a non-Christian, found totally palatable, and often very funny and wise. One appeal is her brave honesty. And she creates images that are unexpected and endearing. For example she referred to thoughts she was having as so terrible that they "would make Jesus want to drink gin out of the cat dish". Interesting stuff. My only caveat is not about her spirituality but about the amount of American political content
