Description


Anne Lamott is my Oprah.” -Chicago Tribune

From the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow comes an inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives.


In Dusk, Night, Dawn, Anne Lamott explores the tough questions that many of us grapple with. How can we recapture the confidence we once had as we stumble through the dark times that seem increasingly bleak? As bad newspiles up—from climate crises to daily assaults on civility—how can we cope? Where, she asks, “do we start to get our world and joy and hope and our faith in life itself back . . . with our sore feet, hearing loss, stiff fingers, poor digestion, stunned minds, broken hearts?”

We begin, Lamott says, by accepting our flaws and embracing our humanity.

Drawing from her own experiences, Lamott shows us the intimate and human ways we can adopt to move through life’s dark places and toward the light of hope that still burns ahead for all of us.

As she does in Help, Thanks, Wow and her other bestselling books, Lamott explores the thorny issues of life and faith by breaking them down into manageable, human-sized questions for readers to ponder, in the process showing us how we can amplify life's small moments of joy by staying open to love and connection. As Lamott notes in Dusk, Night, Dawn, “I got Medicare three days before I got hitched, which sounds like something an old person might do, which does not describe adorably ageless me.” Marrying for the first time with a grown son and a grandson, Lamott explains that finding happiness with a partner isn't a function of age or beauty but of outlook and perspective.

Full of the honesty, humor, and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions of readers, Dusk, Night, Dawn is classic Anne Lamott—thoughtful and comic, warm and wise—and further proof that Lamott truly speaks to the better angels in all of us.

Praise For…


"Dusk Night Dawn delivers prose that satisfices literary as well as spiritual tastes." —The Washington Post

"She is brilliant. Her writing makes me weep." —Hoda Kotb, Today Show

"In difficult times, is there a more soothing voice than Lamott’s? Her latest book on the trickiness of faith and hope is chock-full of her trademark wit, at once self-deprecating and self-aggrandizing. And this is her first book since getting married in 2019, so those honest insights about choosing love amid anxiety are sure to shine even brighter." —Bookpage

"Lamott’s many fans will enjoy this ode to relishing small things." Publishers Weekly, STARRED review
 
"A message of reason and hope we all need to hear." —Booklist, STARRED Review

"By turns wise, funny, tragic, mystical, visionary, and imaginative, Lamott’s latest book … will appeal to a wide range of readers who have previously enjoyed her relatable writing. Readers new to Lamott are opening themselves to a real treat, as her abilities as a storyteller are in full form." —Library Journal

“In this collection of short, incredibly timely essays, Lamott attempts to answer the tough questions that many of us grapple with…Drawing from her own experiences, Lamott shows the intimate and human ways we can adopt to move toward places of light and hope.” Pure Wow

“[Anne Lamott] grows ever more glorious as a writer. As in her previous work, Dusk, Night, Dawn shimmers with humor and beauty…How could you resist learning from this woman?” Spirituality & Health
