Debbie Millman | Audio

Anne Lamott

Anne Lamott covers some big subjects in her writing. Alcoholism and drug addiction, single motherhood, faith and depression, just to name a few. Yet she does it with grace and humor. And book by book she has built a large audiecence of dedicated fans. Some favorites are Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, and Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and Repair. Her most recent book is titled Almost Everything: Notes on Hope. And if there’s something we need, right now, more than anything, it’s hope.

Debbie talks with Anne about her life and her long career. “I mean I’m so in the wrong profession because I hate being criticized. And I just shrink up, like a snail with salt being poured on it.”
