Praise for WHAT POETS ARE LIKE:
"It is funny, heartfelt, instructive and erudite while remaining, in a story tellers way, wryly entertaining. Check it out, you won't be disappointed." —OSCAR HIJUELOS, AUTHOR OF THE MAMBO KINGS PLAY SONGS OF LOVE
"The writer at work and in life takes a serpantine path. Gary Soto's story is sweet, bittersweet, and at times quite funny." —SHAWN WONG, AUTHOR OF AMERICAN KNEES
