Donald Miller afficionados will be pleased with this book as a follow up to Blue Like Jazz, it reads like the final piece of a Trilogy. Part semi-autobiographical novel and part writers how-to-manual it is easily the ‘steak frites’ of his career. Waffling between comedic glimpses of his middle years, a juicy reunion with his ever-absent father, and the hard won wisdom that what is most memorable about stories and life is when things go wrong Miller shares his personal wisdom, triumphs, and life philosophy without beating the pulpit, shaming or degrading other peoples personal journeys. Add it to your arsenal of A+ modern masters of the quill.
