Format: Taschenbuch
lamott has once again translated potential tragedy into a spiritual experoence that defies the mere flesh. there is so much to love about this book; my favorite line is where someone is criticizing the teenage lamott for being thin and her father says, "yes. like a gazelle." it's hard not to connect with a book that magically transforms cancer into an abundance of wry love and growth, wihtout exploiting the maudlin aspects of disease into a kind of psychobabble pulp-- no, she adroitly and honestly represents familial love and reality during crisis in a way that touches all who have watched a loved one, or parent, suffer the cruel and senseless blows of a degenerative disease. As always I find her styling and characters superb in their authenticity; she once again demonstrates an unerring voice for dialogue and transmits emotion into a funny, moving account. this is a wonderful book and a great gift to her father. it's difficult to believe this was her first novel, and the rave reviews she received for this brave effort are well deserved....if you liked any of her previous books, I guarantee this will not be a disappointment, but rather a joyous discovery......

Having come upon and enjoyed thoroughly, BIRD BY BIRD by Anne Lamott, I was anxious to read another book by this author. My research started with and probably will end with HARD LAUGHTER. Judging by the other Amazon reviews of this book I am one of five who not only didn't like it but would have stopped reading it after the first chapter if I was not dedicated to finishing any book I begin. First of all, in my opinion, to support a novel without a story line, a book has to have exceptional prose and great characters.This book had neither. I thought if these people opened another beer, I'll scream. Moreover, Jennifer's relationships in addition to being pathetic were sophomoric, and the descriptions of sex, dreams, food, sex, family members told me more than I ever wanted to know about any of them. I suppose they were a loving family with deep alcoholic ties but unfortunately if there was humor, it was lost on me. What I missed most, in this book was the charm I found in in BIRD BY BIRD. For me, the laughter was indeed hard to come by. I'm writing this not to be cruel, but because I think if someone looks up the comments as I did, it might be good to read a dissenting opinion.

I stumbled onto Anne Lamott while grocery shopping. Marginally coping with a new baby and a three year old I picked up "Operating Instructions-A Journal of My Son's First Year" and threw it into my cart. It quickly became my book of "daily affirmations" for the less than perfect parent. With hopeful anticipation I searched for more of her writing and found "Hard Laughter". I wasn't disappointed. The characters came alive and I realized the author was writing about her own family. These were the same voices I had grown to like so much in her journal. Once again her imperfect, humorous, messy, love-filled life lifted my spirits. I laughed even as I read of her father's diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer. The only disappointment was that it ended too soon and I had to leave the characters I felt I knew so well. I can't wait for more Lamott

I chose this Anne Lamott novel based on the fact it had the most favorable customer reviews here at Amazon of her novels. I am a big fan of "Bird by Bird" and had very high expectations. I was very annoyed by this book and wish I had not ignored the one unfavorable review. The characters all sounded like Lamott herself and many of the witticisms came off as just sounding as if she was trying to be clever. Pointless reading unless you just happen to be from a perfectly functional family that is dealing with cancer! I can deal with the lack of plot but a total lack of conflict, or one single compelling character is just plain boring.

Von Ein Kunde am 18. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book handles some difficult territory as only Anne Lamott could. She can be brutally honest and hilarious all at the same time. That she could bring that quality to the nightmarish experience of watching a loved one battle cancer -- something all too many of us know about firsthand -- sets this book apart. One of the previous reviewers found this book "distasteful." Well, there is nothing tasteful about cancer and the way it shatters one's way of life. I know of no other book that touches on the confusion and the anguish and the humanity of that experience like this one does. This is very worthwhile reading.
