"She plays a Chopin Mazurka in B-flat major – a piece with an energy that is so intrinsically Polish the Kurcs are still for a moment as the notes flood their hearts with memories of home.”

—We Were the Lucky Ones, Chapter 63

Years ago, Anne Lamott's "Bird by Bird, Instructions on Writing and Life," inspired me to tackle the daunting task of researching and writing a book. Yesterday, I started Lamott's 2014 collection of essays, "Small Victories, Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace." I'm a chapter in, and once again bowled over by her talent.

I selected this book for my December book club read, thanks to the advice of @Sarahsbookshelves - wow did it make for some powerful discussion! An intimate look at what it means to grow up in white working class America, Vance's memoir felt honest and heartbreaking and insightful in a way that reminded me in ways of Cheryl Strayed's Tiny Beautiful Things (which I also adored) and the subject, of course, is incredibly timely. Highly recommend.

Thank you, Publishers Weekly, for the gorgeous review!! More to come @ weweretheluckyones.com:

"Debut author Hunter excavates the remarkable history of her own family this this chronicle...Hunter side-steps hollow sentimentality and nihilism, revealing instead the beautiful complexity and ambiguity of life in this extraordinarily moving novel."

Georgia_Hunter @Suzze I leaned about my grandfather's past and discovered that I was a quarter Jewish and came from a family of Holocaust survivors, thanks to that assignment! It was certainly eye-opening. Later in my research I leaned the histories of each of my grandfather's siblings and his parents. 3y
Georgia_Hunter @manifestsanity we must have been neighbors! I was on Elmgrove and Irving :) I ❤️ Providence RI. 3y

I don't know which is more surreal - seeing my book on NetGalley's 'Most Anticipated First Works of Fiction' list - or reading the gorgeous review by NetGalley user Christin W (https://s2.netgalley.com/catalog/book/96163)!

Cinfhen I've already stacked this book! When I read the blurb, I knew it had to be based on a true account because it sounds very similar to my own grandfather's experience. I applaud you for sharing your family's experience and journey. I can not wait to read this story 😊 3y

I went to bed early and stayed up late to finish this one - a heartfelt and haunting imagining of what might have happened had Margot Frank (Anne Frank's sister) survived the Holocaust.
