Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life - Anne Lamott I have heard so much hype concerning this book recently that I had assuming it was a recent publication. I mentioned it to my mother during my pre-Father's Day visit and was surprised when she pulled out a 1994 copy from behind a dusty stack of books (we layer books in my family). My mother's book categorizing follows a system unknown to me so I cannot explain why it was next to Rebecca West's The New Meaning of Treason; my mother described both volumes as "interesting".
