Publisher: Counterpoint LLC
Published Date: 1997
Categories: Literary Criticism
Six decades of correspondence sketch the story of a young adult who shouldered enormous domestic responsibilities as daughter, mother, and wife - a sensuous woman who managed to find success as a writer despite a paucity of money, time, and occasionally, spirit. These letters give voice to the self-doubt that lingered behind her strong public persona and tell of her long struggle to find a place in the world - not only as a writer but as a person.

Truth Is Beauty That Hurts The Collected Poems of Elizabeth M. Come There is much to love and enjoy in the poetry of Elizabeth M. Come, as you are about to discover. She was a woman who paid attention to the world, both outside her windows, and within. Her poems are filled with inner visions, of peace and aliveness and God, as well as a sense of the mystical wonders of nature, big as the sky, tiny as "the lace-making spider." She often reminds me of Emily Dickinson, and yet has a very specific charm all her own. These poems are filled with a sense of love and hurt, sensuality, creation, God and romantic love, animals and the soul, sweetness and anger, and a fierce social conscience.... Wise, and spiritual, and down to earth, she can be funny, and then she can break your heart; so there is joy in this poetry, and healing, sharp insight, truth, and pleasure. - from the Foreword by Anne Lamott, author of Crooked Little Heart

Anne Lamott Books, Anne Lamott poetry book Stitches Authors: Anne Lamott
Publisher: Hachette UK
Published Date: 2014-02-13
Categories: Religion
What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable? These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamott's follow-up to her New York Times-bestselling work, Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book, she explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped sheets of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together - one stitch at a time. It's in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humour and humanity.

Poem of the day

Matthew Arnold Poem
 by Matthew Arnold

We cannot kindle when we will
The fire which in the heart resides;
The spirit bloweth and is still,
In mystery our soul abides.
But tasks in hours of insight will'd
Can be through hours of gloom fulfill'd.

With aching hands and bleeding feet
