Stephen Colbert interviews Anne Lamott
As I prepare for our final meeting of a parish book group this evening, I am happy to post this item. We’re reading Anne Lamott’s great book, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith. We’ve had great discussions, and I expect tonight’s meeting to be fruitful as well.
Anyway, this little snippet gives a pretty good impression of what Lamott is like in real life, as opposed to in her poignant and often funny essays. Not surprisingly, she seems funny and poignant. Most important, she can hold her own against Stephen Colbert. That can’t be easy.
She’s talking about her new book, Grace (Eventually). I imagine I’ll read it at some point soon.
