This is my favorite read of this year. Short, powerful, poetic, funny, and deeply moving, you can’t go wrong with this collection of essays by Gregory Boyle who has spent the better part of his life running a gang intervention program in L.A. These essays focus on our universal kinship and are “moving examples of the power of unconditional love in difficult times and the importance of fighting despair.”
