What Now? by Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett has written wonderful novels for which she has received critical acclaim. She has also written essays for such publications as the Atlantic, the New York Times Magazine, and Preservation Magazine. Now she has published a stirring essay, What Now?, based on the commencement address she gave at her Alma Mater, Sarah Lawrence College. This gem is not only for graduates but also for anyone transitioning from one life stage to another. She speaks with wit and candor not only about her experiences in college, but also of life lessons learned as she transitioned from student to line cook, waitress, teacher, and eventually to award-winning author.

Chock-full of insights and reflections:
"If you're trying to find out what's coming next, turn off everything you own that has an OFF switch and listen"
A perfect little book not only to give but maybe to keep on ones bedside table, as well.
