It seems no mother of a newborn has ever been more hilarious, more honest, or more touching than Anne Lamott is in OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. A single parent whose baby's father is out of the picture, Lamott struggles not only to support her little family by her wits and her writing but to stay sober at the same time. Faith in God helps; so does her loyal band of helpers, from her childless best friend Pammy to her mother and "Aunt Dudu" to the folks at the La Leche League hotline. And between colic, wheat-free diets, and the triumph of solid food, Lamott learns that blessings and losses come together, and that as our capacity for joy increases, so does our capacity for grief.
"Smart, funny, and comforting....Lamott has a conversational style that perfectly conveys her friendly, self-deprecating humor." --Los Angeles Times Book Review"Lamott is a wonderfully lithe writer....Anyone who has ever had a hard time facing a perfectly ordinary day will identify." --Chicago Tribune"A funny, self-mocking, vivid account by a gifted novelist and journalist." --The Washington Post
