The Third Third of Life. I'm in it too, and depend upon Anne Lamott not to lump everyone from 45 to 65 into Middle Age, but to come up with a completely new and wonderful name for this unique phase we are in.

As a thinker and spiritualist, Lamott is in a class all by herself due to her superior writing and devastating honesty. Those of us who read her work faithfully have taken many life journeys with her and delight in her unique "bead on things." In the past few years, Lamott's world has been turned upside down by a marriage later in life, American politics going completely off the rails, and of course, the pandemic.

Lamott is a neurotic worrier, which spiritual writers are not supposed to be. She is far from Zen, although she is trying. She never shies away from telling her truth, and telling it with the most incisive and hilarious writing imaginable. With Dusk, Night, Dawn I think Lamott has finally peaked--in her mid-sixties! To call this development inspiring is an understatement.

I wish this book were 700 pages long. I can't get enough of her on marriage, body image, old dogs, being a grandmother, or pretty much any other topic. ( )

I have read almost all of Anne Lamott's nonfiction, so I was expecting this to be more of a good thing. But this book was disappointing. While I encountered one laugh-out-loud section, most of it was complaining and overwrought prose. The subtitle is "On Revival and Courage." I didn't come across anything that could be described like that, nor was this "an inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives." If anything, it was kind of depressing. Lamott honestly describes her current health issues, her relationship with her new husband, how bleak the world is becoming with climate issues, etc. I found very little to encourage me, and no real references to faith. Yes, she's honest about where she is with her life right now, but if you're expecting something uplifting, be prepared to look elsewhere. ( )

Lamott’s twelfth non-fiction book deals with the connection between personal anxieties and social concerns like climate change. With her quiet humor, she talks about how salvation will be grassroots efforts and becoming more mindful and intentional by focusing on personal growth, we have taken the first step to helping society. Lamott’s many fans will not come away disappointed. Lamott continues to help us focus on our own spirituality to improve the world. ( )

Challenging times. In times like these I try tontine wisdom, comfort in other's words. Lamott is a favorite of mine. Her books are honest, humorous, tackle issues which are of concern to many. Climate change, political issues and challenges she has personally faced and continues facing. Newly married at 66, she speaks of personal adjustments as well as the adjustments required for this time in which we are living. She loves nature and uses it to soothe and see.

It is not that I like reading of others misfortunes but so often they/she can show me the way through. This provides comfort. I also love the humor, she doesn't spare herself, her often outlandish, anxiety ridden thoughts seem funny in retrospect. Above all she has a strong faith, not in any particular religion, but in the Bible stories, in the kindness of man, in the hood that we can leave and live a better future.

"Seeing is a form of pure being, unlike watching or looking at. Seems why we're here."

"We rise up to help the best we can, and we summon humor to amend ghastly behavior and dismal ongoing reality."

"Friends save us, service to others save us. Books, nature, community, and music save us."

"Kindness anywhere gives me hope; it changes us."

ARC from Edelweiss. ( )
