it was amazing

Donald Hall's, "Unpacking The Boxes" is a GORGEOUS memoir. POet Laureate of the United States from 2006-2007, Mr. Hall was highly educated. It is fascinating to read what he did during all those years of education and fellowship. The interesting thing is that the book is not so much a memoir of a life in poetry, as a memoir of a life in WRITING. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone who aspires to be a writer. And frankly to anyone who does not. It is just a beautifully written memoir of the life of a literary scholar.
