Waterstones Says

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.
