Anne Lamott Shares Personal Wisdom in 'Plan B'

Anne Lamott is known for her quirky, opinionated and decidedly left-wing take on life. The author of nine previous books, including Hard Laughter and Operating Instructions, Lamott has earned a devoted following -- especially among baby boomers -- for her essays on faith and everyday life.

In her newest collection of personal dispatches, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith, the author picks up where her last book, the bestselling Traveling Mercies, left off. She speaks with NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates.
