This is a well edited collection of Ann Patchett's non-fiction essays, which have very little to do with marriage, happy or otherwise. There is a story of her first unhappy marriage and divorce, and another about how long it took her to marry her second marriage, but that isn't what this collection is about. It's really about how to be human, how to walk the earth with humility, how much hard work goes into writing and how we all need to just do the work, whatever that work is.

I loved this collection so much, I started to read Truth and Beauty, her memoir of a friendship, before I was finished with this book. The two informed each other nicely, filling in stories alluded to in the collection of essays. Now I will read the rest of her early works, backfilling until I have read her oeuvre. There are few authors I have loved enough to do this: David Mitchell, Michael Chabon, Margaret Atwood.

It was pure bliss listening to Ann Patchett read her intelligent, often hilarious and wise essays. Ann reflects on her writing career, childhood observances, the long road to her second marriage, and her independent bookstore in Nashville. I really hated to see this book end.
