Imperfect Birds

Anne Lamott

Host Frank Stasio talks to Anne Lamott about the scourge of drugs, the hardships of adolescence and the endlessly inspiring American family.

Anne Lamott is famous for her revealing, poetic, funny books about motherhood, faith and America. Nearly everything she writes is autobiographical, including her newest book, “Imperfect Birds” (Riverhead Books/2010), which is out in paperback and features a teen named Rosie who goes from being a likable, model student-athlete to lying, stealing and using drugs.
