Bursting with hard-won, practical advice and invaluable tips and tricks, Lamott’s volume is the definitive guide for all aspiring writers which also doubles as a sage self-help manual for life itself.  

Bird by Bird is the bible of writing guides - a wry, honest, down-to-earth book that has never stopped selling since it was first published in the United States in the 1990s. Bestselling novelist and memoirist Anne Lamott distils what she's learned over years of trial and error. Beautifully written, wise and immensely helpful, this is the book for all serious writers and writers-to-be.

Superb writing advice . . . hilarious, helpful and provocative A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps [A] classic of the genre My go-to gift or recommendation for anyone interested in writing, though it is as much a treatise on life as it is a creative-writing primer A generous and funny guide to writing and life Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott is a classic for a reason. A warm and honest look at the real work of writing, funny and realistic and also encouraging. I always return to it A treasure trove of insight both practical and profound, timelessly revisitable and yielding deeper resonance each time Deftly and honestly explores the mental challenges of being a writer, and Lamott's advice is, simply put, invaluable Praise for Almost Everything: Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. [Her] real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones . . . perfectly. She is nothing short of miraculous I keep learning a lot from the clear and great Annie Lamott. I think you will, too
