"Anne Lamott is one of the finest writers of fiction and nonfiction in America! Her book, Bird by Bird, has proved extremely useful to me in my own writing, and in a Creative Writing class I teach. I will be ordering the DVD to show to my students this summer."
Interesting but dated profile

"This is a film record of Anne Lamott's lecture on writing dating back to around 1998. It provides some insight into the person I consider one of the greatest writers of the Baby Boomer generation. But since Annie is so topical (and since this is in truth intended as snapshot in time), some of the material is dated like a Johnny Carson monologue. But it's still enjoyable and well worth owning for Lamott fans. I would love to have something similar that was made in 2009."
