New York Times Bestseller
From the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow and Hallelujah Anyway 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.

Anne Lamott writes from a deep place, funny and painful

The incomparable Anne Lamott shines in this collection of new and selected essays. Each essay focuses on one person in Lamott's life--her mother, father, brother, friends, and even her enemies. A combination of insightful, cheeky, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a great read for Progressive Christians and non-Christians who are interested in reading one woman's journey toward forgiveness.

Comforting and hopeful, although it's mostly things the author has said before.
