Blue Shoe, by Anne Lamott. Riverhead Books. 304 pages. $24.95. Blue Shoe marks Anne Lamott's return to fiction after a long hiatus, during which her well-received series of memoirs (Traveling Mercies, Bird by Bird, Operating Instructions) garnered her a hearty audience. Drawing on topics she addressed in those memoirs -- family, alcoholism, faith -- in Blue Shoe Lamott crafts a tale in which many women will find themselves. Mattie Ryder is pushing 40 hard, pushing against her size 12 waistline, pushing through each day as a newly divorced mother of two unhappy young children, Harry and Ella, trying to make ends meet in every sense of the term and failing miserably.
