"On my forty-ninth birthday, I decided that all of life was hopeless, and I would eat myself to death. ... However, after a second cup of coffee, I realized that I couldn't kill myself that morning — not because it was my birthday but because I'd promised to get arrested the next day."Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith ~ by Anne Lamott, 2005, memoir
With Anne Lamott's trademark wisdom, humor, and honesty, Plan B is a spiritual antidote to anxiety and despair in our increasingly fraught times.The opening sentences got my attention, and I will keep reading to see what happens next. An Amazon reviewer used this book as a morning devotional and said, "This book is refreshing in its humanity. Its stories of real, broken, and amazing people helped me see the broken and amazing people in my own life."
