Life Doesn't Frighten Me - Maya Angelou, Jean-Michel Basquiat (Illustrator), Jean-Michel Basquat

I really can't imagine that I would have cared much for the art of Basquiat if the editor hadn't done such a fabulous job of pairing the words with the pictures. The result feels like a close collaboration, rather than an after-the-fact pairing. Nice back matter, for those who care, too.

And a shout-out to my local librarians who always find new books to tempt me with in their displays, even when I'm in  bit of a reading slump.
