Joe Jones e-book

by Anne Lamott


Joe Jones was my fourth Anne Lamott book and by far the best thus far. It’s main characters, Louise, Joe and Willie are real life people interacting with a various cast of individuals that cross their paths.

Joe Jones is Anne Lamott’s raucous novel of lives gathered around Jessie’s Café, "a restaurant from another era, the sort of broken-down waterfront dive one might expect to find in Steinbeck or Saroyan.

Anne Lamott was born on April 10, 1954 in San Francisco, California. She began writing when she returned to California after spending two years at Goucher College, but her early efforts, mostly short stories, met with little success. The turning point in her writing came with a family crisis, when her father was diagnosed with brain cancer.

With generosity, humor, and pathos, Anne Lamott takes on the barrage of dislocating changes that shook the Sixties. Leading us through the wake of these changes is Nanny Goodman, a girl living in Marin County, California.

Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration. Lamott weaves a complex tale that moves along breezily with great heart and humor, but skim the surface and you will find human frailty, remorse, and loss. She is nothing short of miraculous. Lamott brings invaluable humor, imagination, and magnanimity to the conversation about faith. Back in print after fifteen years, JOE JONES is a testament to the ways in which humor heals and binds.

If love is details, so is storytelling, and Anne Lamott excels at it. Her way with analogy, metaphor, and evocative detail is subtle; her ability to shift from the specific to the general to the specific again, superb.

Joe Jones is Anne Lamott’s raucous novel of lives gathered around Jessie’s Café, the sort of broken-down waterfront dive one might expect to find in Steinbeck. Jessie, thin, stooped and gorgeous at seventy-nine, inherited the café years before and it has become home to a remarkable family of characters: Louise, the cook and vortex, Joe, devoted and unfaithful; Willie, Jessies gay grandson; Georgia, an empress dowager who never speaks; and a dozen others all living together in the sweet everyday.

Louise, a cook at Jessie's Cafe, relies on humor and the friendship of her co-workers and regulars at the cafe to get over her breakup with Joe Jones

I get the mixed reviews, honestly, but it's the imperfections that make this book grab hold of me and not let go.

I named my pet duckling JoeJones.

I love her turn of phrase, nicknames and messiness. I LOVE Jessie and Willie and Lou and Joe. Georgia!!! I ADORE Georgia!!

No joke I searched for this book for over 10 years only to find a signed copy in a teeny bookstore in Marin. Then it got put back into print, I now have 4 copies.

Buy it Imeejamow!

I am an avid Anne LaMott reader. The commentator who said they were off to read ROSIE will NOT be disappointed. That is an extraordinary book. Although I enjoyed these characters they didn't have the usual depth of LaMott's characters. They were all full of flaws, yes, but I didn't actually believe how they felt about each other. And I could find little in me that even liked Joe Jones. I would've rather seen Louise in a book all by herself. Anyway - I am not swayed from my love of LaMott and her work but this wasn't my fave and I certainly don't reccommend it to forst time readers of her work. Do not stop go - go directly to ROSIE.

I adore Anne Lamott. That is all.

A novel that has many flavors of love, friendship, betrayal, humor, acceptance, distancing, returning, humanness--what's not to like! Oh, and lovely writing, quotable lines, depth. Just loved it. Thank you Anne Lamott!

Absolutely hilarious! Loved it and so did my husband. Entertaining, witty, profane and spot on character development. Can't say everyone would enjoy it as much as we did, but I'm giving a copy to our 35 year old son for Christmas. I can hear him laughing already.

Anne Lamont is always funny and profound. This book was no exception.
Loved this book! One of my favorites.
