Poetry. "In this book, Solonche is sharing a lifetime of wit and experience, a whole library of bittersweet moments and insights—and all of it, free of pretension...I can't stress this enough: this is honestly one of the best and most enjoyable books of poetry I've ever read, and I've read thousands...The playfulness, humor, and accessibility of these poems blend so perfectly with the underlying brilliance and craft that these poems seem effortless, though they're anything but. As I was reading this, I kept asking myself, 'How is this poem NOT being taught in classrooms all around the world? And what about that one? And this one? And that one?!'"—Michael Meyerhofer
