Lamott is at her witty, edgy, Liberal best in this interview about her latest collection of essays. Whether raging against the current political landscape, recalling her former hard-drinking and drug-taking past, explaining the complex emotions behind assisting a friend’s suicide, or neurotically worrying about her teenaged son, Lamott never fails to resonate with readers of all faiths, or no faith at all. Her humanity and compassion reverberate through all her books—fiction and non-fiction alike, including her best-selling Operating Instructions, Bird by Bird, Traveling Mercies, Blue Shoe, and Plan B.
