Description
The author of six books of poetry (including the Pulitzer Prize finalist American Sublime) and the poet who composed and recited "Praise Song for the Day" for Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration, Elizabeth Alexander gives us a bittersweet, profoundly loving memoir of her 15-year marriage to Ficre Ghebreyesus, who died in 2012 at the age of 50. In her short, lyrical entries—some of them recipes—Alexander meditates on the blessings of love, family, art, and community, while also celebrating a life well-lived.

"This is a beautifully written, heartrendingly candid account of the abrupt loss of her husband by the distinguished poet Elizabeth Alexander. It is a vivid, intensely rendered elegy of a remarkable man—husband, father, artist, chef. Both a memoir and a portrait of a marriage, The Light of the World is ... one of the most compelling memoirs of loss that I have ever read."—Joyce Carol Oates
