Publisher Description

“Devotion’s biggest triumph is its voice: funny and unpretentious, concrete and earthy—appealing to skeptics and believers alike. This is a gripping, beautiful story.” —Jennifer Egan, author of The Keep “I was immensely moved by this elegant book.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

Dani Shapiro, the acclaimed author of the novel Black and White and the bestselling memoir Slow Motion, is back with Devotion: a searching and timeless new memoir that examines the fundamental questions that wake women in the middle of the night, and grapples with the ways faith, prayer, and devotion affect everyday life. Devotion is sure to appeal to all those dealing with the trials and tribulations of what Carl Jung called “the afternoon of life.”

Wonderfully thought provoking

I heard about this book when Dani did an interview with Oprah on super soul Sunday. I've loved it. Easy to pick up and put down again as the stories are vignettes. I really identified with the author as she struggles with her "religious identity" and trying to find her true self. I found this book helpful in my journey.
