Publisher's Description

Look out for Anne's latest book, Hallelujah Anyway, on sale now.

New York Times
Bestseller

"Lamott’s …most insightful book yet, Stitches offers plenty of her characteristic witty wisdom…this slim, readable volume [is] a lens on life, widening and narrowing, encouraging each reader to reflect on what it is, after all, that really matters."—People


What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to what’s sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?

These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Lamott’s profound follow-up to her New York Times–bestselling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time.

It’s in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humor, and humanity.

Denver Post

New York Daily News

"[Stitches] brings the beloved author's trademark compassion, wisdom and tart wit to the question of how to deal with suffering and loss, both public and personal."
Tampa Bay Times

"Whirling, fuming, blunt, wise, and funny…Lamott’s larky yet shrewd needle-and-thread spirituality is realistic and renewing."
Booklist

"Vintage Lamott: funny, brilliantly self-deprecating, and insightful."
Publishers Weekly

    I like what Anne Lamott has to say and how she says it. She has lived a raggedy life and come to a relationship with Jesus that has changed the raggedyness into something He can use. She uses her life experience well. She breaks life bites down to my size. She helps me understand and relate to what happens around me and in me. I just love her. 'Stitches' takes living life and puts Jesus where He belongs...in everything.
