Description

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.

Review quote

Superb writing advice . . . hilarious, helpful and provocative * * New York Times Book Review * * A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps * * Los Angeles Times * * [A] classic of the genre . . . The lessons she shares with her students . . . are refreshing * * Guardian * * My go-to gift or recommendation for anyone interested in writing, though it is as much a treatise on life as it is a creative-writing primer -- MATT HAIG A treasure trove of insight both practical and profound, timelessly revisitable and yielding deeper resonance each time * * Brain Pickings * * Deftly and honestly explores the mental challenges of being a writer, and Lamott's advice is, simply put, invaluable * * Bustle * * Praise for Almost Everything: Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. [Her] real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones . . . perfectly. She is nothing short of miraculous * * New Yorker * * I keep learning a lot from the clear and great Annie Lamott. I think you will, too -- GLORIA STEINEM Anne Lamott has a rare talent for making writing look easy . . . Given the warmth, liveliness and intimacy of her prose, time with one of her books can feel like a visit with a friend * * Wall Street Journal * * Part memoir, part manual and part sermon from the church of Lamott, this satisfying escape points to notes of beauty in our uncertain world * * People * *
