Publisher's Summary

"Anne Lamott is my Oprah." (Chicago Tribune)

From the best-selling author of Help, Thanks, Wow comes an inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives.

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 news piles up - from climate crises to daily assaults on civility - how can we cope? Where, she asks, "do we start to get 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 toward 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, humor, and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions, 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.

Critic Reviews

"Dusk Night Dawn delivers prose that satisfices literary as well as spiritual tastes." (The Washington Post)

"She is brilliant. Her writing makes me weep." (Hoda Kotb, Today Show

"In difficult times, is there a more soothing voice than Lamott’s? Her latest book on the trickiness of faith and hope is chock-full of her trademark wit, at once self-deprecating and self-aggrandizing. And this is her first book since getting married in 2019, so those honest insights about choosing love amid anxiety are sure to shine even brighter." (Bookpage

Real Refreshing and good for the Soul

I love Anne’s writing and Dusk, Night, Dawn is my favorite. I laughed and related to all she had to say. It’s not easy to stop and observe what’s going on around us. This audible book grounded me and the story of Esalen reminded me of my visits there. We need more real people with humor and wisdom like Anne.

Listen to sample before you purchase!

I love Anne Lamott but couldn’t continue to listen to this. She sounds like Lily Tomlin as if she were drunk, stoned, and depressed all at the same time. Sorry!

Anne Lamont’s voice...

Is like no other, and this has become another of my favorite Anne books. It is perfection in reminding us of our beautiful imperfection. It lives up to its title and transforms your heart and spirit. Get ready for a beautiful ride.

Read this book if the world isn’t quite dismal enough

I ordered this book on Audible because Bob Goff, one of my favorites recommended it. What a Huge letdown. This author is a heavy blanket.

The only kind of hope that I can trust.

Anne Lamott tells the truth about life and so I trust her. I feel validated and ready to keep trying.
