Traveling Mercies: an excerpt

  Anne Lamott is one of our most personal writers. She has won a devoted legion of fans because her work is imbued with such candor, compassion and irony. She possesses an endearing flair for making her readers think and feel. Her new book, Traveling Mercies, is full of an exuberant mix of passion, insight, and self-deprecating humor. In it, she tackles the question of faith, taking us on a journey through her own troubled past, to show how she came to believe in God, and the myriad ways in which faith sustains and guides her in everyday life.

In this issue of Bold Type Anne Lamott contributes an essay about how she came to write Traveling Mercies and an excerpt from the book.
