really liked it
Read from July 27 to 29, 2011

Very good. I thought it might be unsufferable because it was a summer reading book. I don't know why I always doubt them, because I usually end up loving them. Maybe it was Fences that made me such a s.r.cynic. But anyways, Baker's story is remarkably well told, and the memoir is extremely well written. It shone a spotlight into Baker's heart, and even more amazingly, into the hearts of the people around him. Baker has gained great insight into his childhood from growing up, and it shows in his prose.
