A practical, helpful and funny guide to the phenomenal world of writing, Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott is one of the least preachy and actually applicable guides to writing, getting published, and to life at large. The author shells out instances from her own personal experiences and wisely yet wittily touches upon almost all areas of a writer’s world.

The book is subsumed under the simple scene of the author’s brother having to submit a project on birds, for which he is burdened with a plethora of books for research, and is clueless about where to start. Their father then comes to the rescue asking him to go ‘bird by bird’. This is exactly how Lamott tries to explain to the reader about the intricacies of the writing scenario and about getting published eventually, the key to which is to take it gradually.

From touching upon the concept of writer’s block, to the feelings of jealousy in the writer, to going broke with each paragraph, Lamott does it all in a humorous fashion. Both practical and profound, Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird is useful for any budding or aspiring writer because of its sheer simplicity and timelessness. Moreover, the author not only sketches the real picture of a writer’s world, but also draws on her experiences to talk about humanity and about valuable lessons learnt from her own life.

The book was published by Anchor Books in 1995, and is available in paperback.
