Product description

In "Some Assembly Required," Anne Lamott enters a new and unexpected chapter of her own life: grandmotherhood.Stunned to learn that her son, Sam, is about to become a father at nineteen, Lamott begins a journal about the first year of her grandson Jax's life.In careful and often hilarious detail, Lamott and Sam-about whom she first wrote so movingly in "Operating Instructions"-struggle to balance their changing roles with the demands of college and work, as they both forge new relationships with Jax's mother, who has her own ideas about how to raise a child. Lamott writes about the complex feelings that Jax fosters in her, recalling her own experiences with Sam when she was a single mother. Over the course of the year, the rhythms of life, death, family, and friends unfold in surprising and joyful ways.By turns poignant and funny, honest and touching, "Some Assembly Required" is the true story of how the birth of a baby changes a family-as this book will change everyone who reads it.
