With a sharp sense of storytelling and a sly wit, What Poets Are Like is a memoir of the writing life that shares the keen observation, sense of self and humour of such writers as Sherman Alexie and Nora Ephron. In some 60 short episodes, this book captures moments of a writer's inner and public life; time spent with cats; the curious work of writing. As all writers do, Soto suffers the slings and arrows of rejection and seeks the solace of a friendly dog at such moments. He jabs at the crumbs of reward available to writers; a prize nomination here, a magazine interview there and notes the toll they take on a frail ego. The pleasure Soto takes in the written word and a dose of comic relief make this an engaging and readable writer's confession.
