Sometimes authors write the way the announcers talk on those 50s game shows
... did anyone ever really talk with accents like that, or with voices like that?
Well, no one has more of a true voice than Anne Lamott. A recovered alcoholic and addict, this author has enough self-loathing to rival Kurt Cobain. Although her characters never seem to be happy and they are always going through hell, they still lead a life full of warmth and buoyant humor. Her non-fiction points to someone who is so unaffected, so warm-hearted and so world-weary.
