Author’s Favorite Books: Anne Lamott
By Lydia L.
For any fan of the written word, a peek into the literary likes and dislikes of an author is priceless–a voyeuristic venture into the mind of an artist who works in words. And this New York Times’ piece featuring Anne Lamott is about as behind the scenes as one can get. The author of such notable nonfiction as Bird by Bird and Travelling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith, Lamott lets loose with some favorite books, some no-so favorite books, and even a juicy tidbit concerning her love for trashy magazines. No, really!
