From the New York Times bestselling author of Bird by Bird, Hallelujah Anyway, and Almost Everything

“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.


  • Rambling tedium

    This book, and Operating Instructions, were tedious and boring. Lamott spends entirely too much time crowing about her faith and spirituality. Cloying and sticky.
