What Poets Are Like by Gary Soto

Gary Soto is the author of children’s books, young adult fiction, and numerous collections of poetry—and is often referred to as one of the nation's first Chicano poets. In What Poets are Like, Soto captures episodes of a writer’s inner and public life. From rejection letters, to craving only the dog’s company, to the acclaim (or lack-there-of) that comes with writing poetry, Soto’s deep wit and self-deprecating sense of story-telling opens up toward surprising reflection and appreciation of a writer’s life. I loved this book for its unapologetic honesty and insight; here’s to irreverence at its best.
