Rezension

"Lamott is beloved by legions for her smart, irreverent take on the human condition, filtered through her unique brand of compassionate Christianity and delivered with delicious, self-deprecating wit. Lamott goes even deeper in these essays."
-People

"Anne Lamott is practically a household word in the peeling-back-the-soul department. She's utterly disarming. She's hysterically funny. One minute, you're falling off your chair laughing, and the next, you're gasping for air, because Lamott has just unfurled a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know. ... Lamott is one in a million... Hers is an inimitable mix of irreverence and deep-down holy wisdom. Her wit is so sharp, her synapses fire so quickly, she deftly connects the dots and vaults across the spiritual landscape like nobody else...Lamott grounds the holy in the messy, hilarious, madcap adventure that is her life. And she sees the truth so piercingly perceptibly, we're left slack-jawed and wiser in her wake."
-Chicago Tribune

"A collection of beautifully written essays, filled with nuggets of wisdom gathered over years of mindful living. The stories tackle some heavy topics ... [but] Lamott's candor, and sarcastic, self-deprecating humor lighten the content and engage readers. ...Her words heal us all."
-Associated Press

"[Lamott's] insightful and often hilarious prose celebrates the little lessons that everyday challenges can teach us."
-Women's Day

"Most [of Lamott's essays] balance wry, acidic humor with deeper feeling - most often, a longing for grace and a sense of gratitude for its manifestations."
-The Boston Globe

"Prime examples of Lamott's crystalline insights and wicked wit. There are laugh-out-loud moments...and frank revelations about her personal brand of 'left-wing Christianity,' that sound a clarion call to social activism rather than sanctimonious judgment. It is so good to hear from her again."
-The Austin Chronicle

"Lamott can infuse even the darkest material with humor and uplifting revelations. Much loved by fans, her books are on many a nightstand within reach for hour-of-the-wolf reading."
-New York Daily News

"Lamott is funny, witty and irreverent...Her basic message is love and forgiveness...Not a bad message for any faith."
-The Denver Post

"Lamott once again summons her calm and reassuring voice to tenderly grab us by the hand and walk us through the most uncomfortable moments we may ever encounter in life: pain, suffering, betrayal and loneliness. Lamott masterfully and matter-of-factly recounts her battles with sobriety, her complex relationship with her family, and how she ultimately found her voice through spirituality. Heavy? Yes. But within each bracingly honest story, Lamott lathers on her trademark humor."
-NY 1

"Anne Lamott embraces language and life with equal zest, squeezing from the intersection wisdom of the most soul-stretching kind...A master of the touchpoint between wit and wisdom, Lamott adds to the poignant a wink of the playful...Small Victories is an enormously ennobling read in its entirety."
-Brainpickings

"[Lamott is] perhaps the best popular essayist America has produced in decades...[Small Victories] brings together a range of heartfelt journalistic and spiritual writings, which have all the pleasures and accessibility, the humor and surprise, of her longer books...A must for all Lamott fans and a fine point of entry for newcomers."
-Library Journal (starred review)

"Honest, witty essays on the hidden blessings in life...Sage advice on finding beauty and happiness in life despite bad circumstances."
-Kirkus Reviews

"An essay collection that tackles tough subjects with sensitive and unblinking honesty...Lamott is refreshingly frank...[and] has the rare ability to weave bracing humor seamlessly with earnest, Christian faith."
-Publishers Weekly

"Thank goodness for Anne Lamott. Her writing style, both unfussy and diaphanous, her congenial
