The Book of DelightsThe Book of Delights by Ross Gay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


(Rounded up from 3.5 stars)

Poet Ross Gay challenged himself to write an essay every day for a year about something he found delight in. He edited the results down to this book, which is enchanting in its enthusiasm. From the joys of animal and plant interaction in his garden to his memories of dealing with family and friends to simply something that catches his eye, he finds a lot to delight him, even if it is sometimes tempered by consumerism, racism, and other cultural violence. In the end, his joy is infectious and the book is like reading the diary of a friend's ecstasy and joie de vivre.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book from Netgalley. The book is due to be published February
