**** 1/2

This is a beautiful and intimate collection of poems and essays. My favorites were Sunday Mornings in the Kitchen with Gan'ganny, Behind the Music, and the incredibly powerful (and written for his wife) Daughter of the Revolution. The poems have such power and rhythm that I could hear them being read out loud; I hope to hear Guy read at some point. My only (truly) minor complaints are that a) I wanted more and b) I wanted a hardcopy book to read, rather than reading it on my Kindle. (I think I hear Guy laughing....) If you're looking for something new and fresh, here it is.
