so, I’m reading Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott on the recommendation (however indirect) of Dan and Suzanne Price. Now Anne Lamott has always seemed to be, sort of, “half-off” to me, which is not to say “half-assed” but that is another discussion for another time. So It’s hard for me to commit to this book. I, as many of you know, am a mystery reader almost exclusively. The draw is for the puzzle. I like to try to figure out what’s going on. I read non-fiction generally when I have some actual questions: “who exactly was King Tut?”, “What is the estimated weight of the Earth?” those sorts of things.
I am not a reader of memoir; my life is chaotic enough. But this book, this journey of Lamott’s is said to be revealing. So, I have a challenge for you readers.
Can you guess what my actual question might be?
p.s. might have to read the book.
