Kwame Alexander, poet and narrator of several of his own books, brings poignancy to his "snapshots of a man learning to love. Again." His memoir is a savory-sweet mix of poems, letters, and recipes. Regardless of form, they are shot through with a poet's rhythms, sensory memories, moving moments of learning, and unique experiences that strike a universal chord. Candidly, Alexander brings authenticity to remembering his and other family members' failures, loves, and wisdom. He does not shy away from stories about resolving a difficult relationship with his father, missing deadlines, and other expressions of sensuality, grief, divorce, or death. Strong emotional tones reflect the devotion he feels for his daughters; his mentor, Nikki Giovanni; and his beloved mother. S.W.
