"Well, mom, I think that we're finally American." That's what Richard Blanco said when in January 2013, he was named the inaugural poet for Barack Obama's second swearing-in ceremony. To assert that his reading made history is to understate: He was the first gay person, the first Latino, the first immigrant, and, in fact, the youngest poet ever to be so honored. In this poignant, hilarious, and inspiring memoir, he describes his coming-of-age as he improvised his transitions from one country to another.
