Stitches

A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and Repair

By Anne Lamott

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

A wise and compassionate exploration of how we can make sense of life's chaos.

What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?

These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Lamott's profound follow-up to her New York Times-bestselling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time.

It's in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humour and humanity.

The meaning [of pain] doesn't come through answering theological questions, it comes through taking the trouble to walk with someone through the hard times and share the weight. That is what this lovely, hopeful, helpful book does. — Kim Kelly, Reform Magazine
I urge you to read this great little book, filled with Anne Lamott's insight and counsel on 'collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric' and how to 'sew them back together, one stitch at a time. — Rev Johnny Douglas
This book hovers, questions, and paints with words at time with some delicacy . . . written in artistic, attractive prose . . . — Idea Magazine
Anne Lamott is a bone-fide literary megastar ... widely loved for her fiercely funny take on life, God, and writing. — Church Times Guide to Greenbelt
Her pages are densely populated by those who have sustained, inspired, and annoyed her. It is as though everything she has learned about life she has learned from journeying with those around her. — Church Times
Stitches: A handbook on meaning, hope and repair was written in response to a very painful situation. — Church Times
Anne Lamott said she intended Stitches to be: a book by someone with a sense of humour, on where we find meaning after tragedy, both private and global. — Church Times
This offers the potential to create something that is unconventional and unplanned but has a rugged beauty and great purpose. This book is for anyone who ever thinks about the deep questions; for the hurting and the lost...I suspect that a few of Lamott's other books may find their way onto my shelves in the near future — Christianity Magazine
Lamott's writing is full of such touchstone quality. It is rich yet colloquial, and again, so funny which is a refreshing aspect to what can be seen as a spritual guidance/self-help title. — The Herald Saturday
A guide through grief, which the author describes in a really honest way that I think people wil relate to. — Families First
This little hardback offers beautiful insights into meaning, hope and repair...she reliably offers hope to those of us who live on the edges of life. If you have a friend who needs encouragement I commend to them, and to you, this book. — Reflections

The End of Time

Beneath the stars, on a stony beach, stand two teenage brothers.They are wearing lifejackets that are too big for them and their most precious belongings are sealed in waterproof bags tucked inside the rucksacks on their backs.Turkey is behind them and Europe lies ahead, a dark, desperate swim away.They don't know what will come next, but they're about to meet a man who does. He calls himself Jesus, the Messiah. He is barefoot, dishevelled and smells strongly of alcohol.And he doesn't believe in chance meetings. He believes he has information about the future - information that will change three lives forever . . .Praise for Gavin Extence:'Extence has such a dry, witty style of writing' Marie Claire'Rich, insightful, darkly serious yet also upliftingly funny' Review of THE MIRROR WORLD OF MELODY BLACK, Jasper Fforde'Delightful, written in a warm, engaging voice . . . It's so good it 'll leave you wanting to change your own life' Review of THE EMPATHY PROBLEM, Independent

I do not know much about God and prayer, but I have come to believe, over the last twenty-five years, that there's something to be said about keeping prayer simple. Help. Thanks. Wow.'

And in Help, Thanks, Wow she has coalesced everything she's learned about prayer into these simple, transformative truths. These three simple prayers will get you through tough times, everyday struggles, and the hard work of ordinary life.It is these three prayers - asking for assistance, appreciating the good we witness, and feeling awe at the world - that get us through the day and show us the way forward. In Help, Thanks, Wow , Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they have meant to her over the years and how they've helped, and explores how others have embraced these ideas.Wow is the third of three eBooks, each covering a single chapter of Anne Lamott's latest book, Help, Thanks, Wow. Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, this is a book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure.
