Gary Soto - What Poets Are Like

Gary Soto is a widely published author of children's and young adult fiction, and he is an acclaimed poet -- often referred to as one of the nation's first Chicano poets. With a sharp sense of storytelling and a sly wit, What Poets Are Like ($14.00) is a memoir of the writing life that shares the keen observation, sense of self and humor of such writers as Sherman Alexie and Nora Ephron.

Gary Soto is the author of eleven poetry collections for adults, most notably New and Selected Poems, a finalist for both the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the National Book Award. He is also the author of more than 35 books for young readers, including Baseball in April, Taking Sides, Too Many Tamales, and Chato's Kitchen.
