Description
"If there is a doyenne of the parenting memoir, it would be Anne Lamott."--"Time "
In "Some Assembly Required," Anne Lamott enters a new and unexpected chapter in her own life: grandmotherhood. Stunned to learn that her son, Sam, is about to become a father at nineteen, Lamott begins a journal about the first year of her grandson Jax's life. In careful and often hilarious detail, Lamott and Sam--about whom she first wrote so movingly in "Operating Instructions"--struggle to balance their changing roles. By turns poignant and funny, honest and touching, "Some Assembly Required "is the true story of how the birth of a baby changes a family--as this book will change everyone who reads it.
