Reviews

"Superb writing advice. . . . Hilarious, helpful, and provocative."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A warm, generous, and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps."
--Los Angeles Times

"One of the funniest books on writing ever published."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"A gift to all of us mortals who write or ever wanted to write. . . . Sidesplittingly funny, patiently wise and alternately cranky and kind--a reveille to get off our duffs and start writing now, while we still can."
--Seattle Times

"Bird by Bird would be worth reading just for Lamott's ele- gant, moving, and often-hilarious prose. But the advice she offers is just as fantastic as the style with which it's delivered."
--Forbes

"Anne Lamott understands better than anyone that writers need help. . . . She writes so well, in fact, that it's hard to believe that she, too, has trouble with writing. That's what's so deeply comforting about this book."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Deftly and honestly explores the mental challenges of being a writer. . . . Lamott's advice is, simply put, invaluable."
--Bustle

"Delight[s] with insight and descriptive acumen. This humorous, insightful, no-nonsense approach will remind novices why they are writing."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Offers unique inspiration. . . . An honest appraisal of what it takes to be a writer and why it matters so much."
--Library Journal
