Anne Lamott claims the two best prayers she knows are: "Help me, help me, help me" and "Thank you, thank you, thank you." She has a friend whose morning prayer each day is "Whatever," and whose evening prayer is "Oh, well." Anne thinks of Jesus as "Casper the friendly savior" and describes God as "one crafty mother." Despite--or because of--her irreverence, faith is a natural subject for Anne Lamott. Since Operating Instructions and Bird by Bird, her fans have been waiting for her to write the book that explained how she came to the big-hearted, grateful, generous faith that she so often alluded to in her two earlier nonfiction books. The people in Anne Lamott's real life are like beloved characters in a favorite series for her readers--her friend Pammy, her son, Sam, and the many funny and wise folks who attend her church are all familiar. And Traveling Mercies is a welcome return to those lives, as well as an introduction to new companions Lamott treats with the same candor, insight, and tenderness. Lamott's faith isn't about easy answers, which is part of what endears her to believers as well as nonbelievers. Against all odds, she came to believe in God and then, even more miraculously, in herself. As she puts it, "My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers." At once tough, personal, affectionate, wise, and very funny, Traveling Mercies tells in exuberant detail how Anne Lamott learned to shine the light of faith on the darkest part of ordinary life, exposing surprising pockets of meaning and hope.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Hallelujah Anyway and Help, Thanks, Wow, a spiritual antidote to anxiety and despair in increasingly fraught times. As Anne Lamott knows, the world is a dangerous place. Terrorism and war have become the new normal. Environmental devastation looms even closer. And there are personal demands on her faith as well: getting older; her mother's Alzheimer's; her son's adolescence; and the passing of friends and time. Fortunately for those of us who are anxious about the state of the world, whose parents are also aging and dying, whose children are growing harder to recognize as they become teenagers, Plan B offers hope that we’re not alone in the midst of despair. It shares with us Lamott's ability to comfort and to make us laugh despite the grim realities. Anne Lamott is one of our most beloved writers, and Plan B is a book more necessary now than ever. It is further evidence that, as The New Yorker has written, "Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration."

Im Sommer 1914 besucht der Medizinstudent Hugh seine geliebte Tante Agatha, deren Ehemann ein hoher Beamter in der Regierung ist. Er wird begleitet von seinem Cousin Daniel, der von einem Leben als Poet und englischer Gentleman träumt. Agatha besteht darauf, dass das Säbelrasseln auf dem Balkan unbeachtet verklingen wird und dass König, Kaiser und Zar wie immer in ihren Sommerurlaub gehen werden. Zudem ist sie mit weitaus Wichtigerem beschäftigt: Seit kurzem ist sie Mitglied des örtlichen Schulbeirates und befürwortet die Einstellung einer weiblichen Lehrkraft. Als Beatrice Nash mit einem Schrankkoffer und riesigen Bücherkisten in der Kleinstadt ankommt, ist schnell klar, dass sie deutlich freidenkender – und attraktiver – ist, als eine Lateinlehrerin es sein sollte. Beatrice, die kürzlich ihren Vater verloren hat, will vor allem in Ruhe gelassen werden. Ihre ganze Energie fließt in ihre Schriftstellerei und in das Entmutigen möglicher Heiratskandidaten. Nichts ist Beatrice wichtiger als ihre Unabhängigkeit. Doch Daniels Charme und Hughs scharfer Verstand wie auch sein nobler Charakter lassen sie in ihrer Haltung schwanken. Mit Ausbruch des Krieges findet der idyllische Sommer ein jähes Ende. Als die Bewohner von den ersten Soldaten Abschied nehmen müssen, ahnen alle, dass sich ihr Leben grundlegend ändern wird.
