If you like to write, Anne Lamott tells you in this book how to make your writing better. If you like to read, she helps you understand what it is about one book that grabs you and holds on long after you've read it, while another book fails to engage you from beginning to end.
Bird by Bird isn't only about writing and reading; it's also about life. It's about the big and little things that happen to people, the similarities and differences between the people those things happen to, and how they--all those people in all those stories--connect with us.
This book has been around for a while, so I suspect many of you are already familiar with it. Somehow I missed it until now. If you've missed it, too, please do yourself a favor and check it out. Soon.
