Poetry. ARE YOU SOMEBODY I SHOULD KNOW? by Dell Lemmon is, according to Jason Koo, one of the most important books of poetry you will ever read. John Yau writes, the poems are about being alone and getting older and setting out each day. They are about memories, lost friendships, friends who died, and one thing leading to another. By virtue of the poet's honesty and clarity and the lucid fever of her observations, you will be inspired to live your life more deeply, to be more aware of every aspect of your life and to treasure every moment of living. Pared down and direct without ever tripping over themselves, the poems are strong rivers pulling you into their currents.
