    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBIThis was a book I thought about giving up on many times There are three reasons why I continued 1 I want to like Anne Lamott's fiction because I so loved Bird by Bird 2 the theme of the book dealing with a father's failing health was a personal connection and 3 I hoped to find an answer to why the author would choose to give her 23 year old protagonist a best friend who was only 10 years old In the end I liked moment of Anne Lamott's fiction I would give her another try because I have faith that from her first novel she only developed a better sense of how to write one I loved the way the novel ended incomplete and hopeful But I still hated truly hated that the character Megan was only ten years old but sounded like she was thirty I have met many precocious young people I'm a teacher after all but her character was altogether unbelievable and irritating

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBII think many nonfiction books should be pamphletsThis novel should have been a short story A very very short storyYes it is at times funny and sweet but good god make something happen What I was thinking during most of the bookLike many I'm sure I picked up Hard Laughter because I love Lamott's take on Shitty First Drafts; I thought I ought to read some of her fiction so as to see what she was talking about in Bird by BirdSo now I have and won't make that mistake again

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBIWhen I interviewed Anne Lamott in 1999 she said Hard Laughter was her worst book I have not read all of her books but I've read Bird by Bird which I found to be a wonderful guide to good writing; Tender Mercies and Operating Instructions Unlike these non fiction books Hard Laughter is billed as a novel yet anyone familiar with Lamott's life knows much of the book is autobiographical I have not read any of Lamott's other novels But of the books I have read Hard Laughter is by far my least favorite She told me that she was still drinking when she wrote the book and I found it to be a bit amateurish at times perhaps reflective of her lack of sobriety The book bears Lamott's trademark wit and sarcasm but they're just not as effective as they are in her other books Don't let this be your

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBII was expecting this book to cover the whole bell curve of her father's illness from diagnosis of brain tumor to passing concentrating heavily on things like days visiting him in hospital ethical uandaries and a daughter's hagiography of her fatherInstead it was like Some Several Months In The Life Of The Author During Which Her Father Begins Treatment For A Possibly Malignant Tumor It was much much about the protagonist the author her thoughts and life And it is therefore much less emotionally wringing in the way I expected it to be and therefore also much funnier and touching and excellently honestly writtenThis is the first book I can think of that I can remember where I was laughing loudly out loud and then crying sobbingly and then laughing great snorting laughs again within three paragraphs Or perhaps five And without a trace of sentimentalityDelicious and despite the long tracts on mental illness and neuroses incredibly wholesome Love

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBIThe main thing I would say about this book is that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone That doesn't just mean I would specifically say Don't read this but also literally I can't think of anyone I'd say Here read this to and that's unusual for me With pretty much any book I can think of one or two specific people who I think would like it get something out of it what have you But this oneit's someh It's so oddl

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBII was trying to read the Anne Lamott books in order but I just got this 1979 one after I had started my reading so it's out of order So I already know a lot of the facts of the apparently most autobiographical story from reading the other books Still there's lots in the book besides the facts I'm enjoying getting to know this Anne Lamott It's like finally getting to meet a friend of friends I've heard so much about her

    PDF Hard Laughter MOBI ↠ ð bunatime.co hard free, laughter free, Hard Laughter MOBIThis is Anne Lamott’s first novel It is also the first Anne Lamott novel I read Maybe if I didn’t know her themes so well it wouldn’t have felt so painfully awkwardly autobiographical but because I have read some of her memoirs I cringed at how transparently the sweet but screwy protagonist Jennifer represented the authorJennifer is 23 and her father has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor She seems to have an unacknowledged drinking problem She isn’t religious but the numinous haunts her She is obsessed with her skin and hair She is zany Her family is oh so delightfully uirky as are her deeply troubled neighbors
