Ross Gay's second book of "essayettes" celebrating delight is as joyful, buoyant, utterly life-affirming, and wonderfully meandering as his first one. Over a year, he writes about the delight he finds in cats, trading fruit, trees, remembering his father, a woman talking to passersby on her porch and the many other residents of Bloomington, Indiana, poetry, teachers, kissing small dogs, and a whole lot more. His narration is warm and conversational and absolutely overflowing with gratitude. These praise songs come alive in his easy poet's voice, often tinged with a smile or a laugh, full of curiosity, agile, and inviting. Gay's earnest love of the world is not merely welcome--it is vital. This short audiobook is a triumph. L.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
