Summary

Dusk Night Dawn: On Revival and Courage is an inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives, from New York Times best-selling author Anne Lamott.

In Dusk Night Dawn, Anne Lamott explores the tough questions that many of us grapple with. How can we recapture the confidence we once had as we stumble through the dark times that seem increasingly bleak? As bad newspiles up - from climate crises to daily assaults on civility - how can we cope? Where, she asks, 'do we start to our world and joy and hope and our faith in life itself back...with our sore feet, hearing loss, stiff fingers, poor digestion, stunned minds, broken hearts?'

We begin, Lamott says, by accepting our flaws and embracing our humanity.

Drawing from her own experiences, Lamott shows us the intimate and human ways we can adopt to move through life's dark places and towards the light of hope that still burns ahead for all of us.

As she does in Help, Thanks, Wow and her other best-selling books, Lamott explores the thorny issues of life and faith by breaking them down into manageable, human-sized questions for listeners to ponder, in the process showing us how we can amplify life's small moments of joy by staying open to love and connection. As Lamott notes in Dusk Night Dawn, 'I got Medicare three days before I got hitched, which sounds like something an old person might do, which does not describe adorably ageless me.' Marrying for the first time with a grown son and a grandson, Lamott explains that finding happiness with a partner isn't a function of age or beauty but of outlook and perspective.

Full of the honesty, humour and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions of listeners, Dusk Night Dawn is classic Anne Lamott - thoughtful and comic, warm and wise - and further proof that Lamott truly speaks to the better angels in all of us.
