StitchesCapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age 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 uilt of life begins and embedded in them are strength warmth humor and humanity  . It's not surprising that this is a brilliant book I haven't read anywhere near all of her books yet I think this is my second nonfiction of hers and I've read one of her novels but I've been incredibly impressed by everything I have readI do wish this book had been longer and that things had been explored a little However anything by Anne Lamott is something to be celebrated and this book is absolutely no exceptionThe thing I loved most about this book is the fact that it doesn't resort to platitudes Horrible things happen and they are hard to deal with and they make us sad and angry and no matter how many times you say It's part of God's plan that never gets easier to hear or will make the listener feel all that much betterBut eventually sometimes almost immediately but generally it takes a while good things come from the horribleness Or sometimes in spite of the horribleness Either way good things do comeHighly recommended

T’s sustaining when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable These uestions lie at the heart of Stitches Lamott’s profound follow up to her New York Times–bestselling Help Thanks Wow In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we re. Another book of wit and wisdom from an author for whom this has become a cottage industry What Anne Lamott does is in my experience uite uniue she bares her soul and invites you to heal along with her Lamott is a damaged person and does not shy away from revealing just how damaged she is But her assumption correct as far as I can see is that we are all broken too and that nothing is healing than sharing that with one anotherOf course if one comes to pick nits they are easy to find Anne is no philosopher so her persepctive on life and the solution to its many problems could easily be picked apart by any devotee of say Kierkegaard She is no psychologist so anyone with any sophistication in the study of the human psyche might roll their eyes But she is not appealing to the intellect here she is hooking into the heartfelt experience of loss and joy giving you the gift of one woman's life to hold up against your own and warm you both And what a gift it is
