This book kind of surprised me. I decided to read this memoir, without expectations, mainly just knowing of this writer through his poetry. His memoir left me with a mixture of emotions, from page to page, especially with my not being able to "guess" what might be happening next. I've never read anything quite like this, and then to keep remembering that is someone's truth--it's deep stuff. Talk about a survivor--someone who's greatness is birthed through such pain and hardship. One Chance To Be a Man has really touched my heart. It's a powerful read, and I appreciate D. Revolution allows us in to view the footage of his life. Now, when's the film coming out???
