The prophet tells us, “Your old will have visions; your young will dream dreams.” Elderly women in a retirement community in Mill Valley protested the war in Iraq on a busy thoroughfare with placards every Friday for years. But one dream coming true doesn’t mean you give up on other lifelong dreams.A man I know of 22, halfway to a medical degree, is pursuing ballet dreams in New York City. You’re not dream-greedy to want, say, a cool career and a mate.Only, it seems, by tuning in to her pain and seeing her father in all his fearful human complexity.Her mother — whose ashes reside in Lamott’s closet — poses a different problem.She wrote her first novel for her father, the writer Kenneth Lamott, when he was diagnosed with brain cancer.She has said that the book was “a present to someone I loved who was going to die.” In all her novels, she writes about loss – loss of loved ones and loss of personal control.She transforms the hike into a spiritual journey, with the forest resembling a vast chapel.
I try to write the books I would love to come upon, that are honest, concerned with real lives, human hearts, spiritual transformation, families, secrets, wonder, craziness—and that can make me laugh.
