Author Anne Lamott takes complicated issues and breaks them down with her quirky, self-effacing sense of humor. From alcoholism and motherhood to religion and family, Lamott uses a personal honesty in her writing that comforts and inspires. She is the author of six novels including 'Crooked Little Heart,' as well as four non-fiction works including 'Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.' Armed with a comic's sense of timing, journalist, novelist and short-story writer Elizabeth Gilbert talks about her writing and her spiritual and travel adventures.
