What Poets Are Like: Up and Down with the Writing Life

by Gary Soto Author

Sixty short vignettes about the poet's life, in which acclaimed chicano poet Gary Soto humorously and poignantly offers moments from the inner and outer life of a writer. He recounts moments of acceptance and rejection, and a lot of time spent writing, time with cats, time hanging out in Cody's Bookstore in Berkeley. His love of the world of poetry, paired with his critiques of the industry, makes for an impassioned and enjoyable read.
