Bird by Bird : Some Instructions on Writing and Life

by Anne Lamott

Bird by Bird : Some Instructions on Writing and Life is just what the title and subtitle say it is. Anne Lamott has written a charming book that's well on its way to becoming a classic.

Writers love it because Lamott lets all the agony, self-doubt and confusion show. We identify with her process and we relish her successes, somehow knowing they can become ours.

The first time I read Bird by Bird, I read it straight through, sometimes laughing, sometimes groaning and sometimes with a tear in my eye. Now I pick it up every now and again, particularly when I need some encouragement or a gentle kick in the behind.

These days I often simply let the book open where it will - full knowing that wherever my eye falls, I'll find exactly what I need.
