This is the second book I've read by Anne Lamott. I think I heard her talk about this one on an NPR show, when she described herself as Christian-ish (from the "I'm not a Jew, I'm just Jew-ish" joke). Her voice is completely different from the voices I usually hear talking about religion. Mainly because she's liberal, feminist, and pro-choice. Other reviewers have called her self-absorbed, but that sounds like another word for introspective, which is what I would call her. I found these essays funny and genuine and comforting. Some moreso that others, as in any collection.
