Book of the Week #39

Unpacking the Boxes: A Memoir of a Life in Poetry by Donald Hall (Houghton Mifflin, 2008)

Donald Hall, in addition to being a great poet, is a wonderful storyteller and this latest volume illustrates that. In this book Hall tells stories of his childhood, his education, why V-J Day has a special significance for him, the role of books in his life, about being an Academic Poet, and many more great stories that he unearthed in the boxes brought back from his Mother's house after her death.
