Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Life Events), by Flora
In Somehow, writer Anne Lamott turns her keen eye on the mysteries of love. Love has many forms and can be practiced and felt in myriad ways. With the help of her friends, spiritual leaders, partner and family, she unpicks what love might look like in our lives, showing us - as she so often does in her books - that there's no right way to love, but we should never stop trying.

Love is our only hope. It is not always the easiest choice, but it is always the right one, the noble path, the way home to safety, no matter how bleak the future looks.

In Somehow: Thoughts on Love, Anne Lamott explores the transformative power that love has in our lives: how it surprises us, forces us to confront uncomfortable truths, reminds us of our humanity and guides us forward.

In each chapter, Lamott refracts all the colours of the spectrum. She explores the unexpected love for a partner later in life. The bruised (and bruising) love for a child who disappoints, even frightens. Drawing from her own life and experience to delineate the intimate and elemental ways that love buttresses us in the face of despair, as it galvanises us to believe that tomorrow will be better than today. The lessons she underscores are that love enlightens as it educates, comforts as it energises, sustains as it surprises.

Full of the compassion and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions of readers, Somehow is classic Anne Lamott: funny, warm and wise.
