Ordinary Light: A Memoir (Paperback)
One of the Best Books of the Year
The New York Times The Washington Post San Francisco Chronicle Denver Post Oprah.com
In Ordinary Light, Pulitzer Prize winning poet Tracy K. Smith tells her remarkable story, giving us a quietly potent memoir that explores her coming-of-age and the meaning of home against a complex backdrop of race, faith, and the unbreakable bond between a mother and daughter. Hereis the story of a young artist struggling to fashion her own understanding of belief, loss, history, and what it means to be black in America.
