Publishers Weekly: No doubt Keys has a fascinating story to tell—raised
by a single mother, she's a classically trained, New York born-and-bred neo-soulster
with two multiplatinum albums and five Grammys to her name—but she merely
hints at it in this gathering of poems and lyrics. With their themes of loneliness,
confusion, wonder and desire, most of Keys's free-verse poems could be the
cris de coeur of any American 20-something: "Sometimes I feel/ like I don't
belong anywhere/ And it's going to take so long/ for me to get somewhere/ Sometimes
I feel so heavy-hearted/ but I can't explain/ cause I'm so guarded." But other
poems hint at her world travels, her budding sense of social justice and her
concerns about stardom ("When gone is the glory/ When gone is the shine/ Is
gone the whole/ Of your fortune and pride?"). Nearly half of the book consists
of lyrics from her two albums, Songs in A Minor and The Diary of Alicia Keys;
while they make a nice complement to the poems, the words feel a bit flat without
the blaxploitation beat of "Heartburn," say, or the impassioned vocal delivery
of "Fallin.' " For the Keys completist, however, this will be a compelling
book of rock ephemera. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division

Autobiography of Malcolm X
by MALCOLM X
"would move. I am not sure why he made this decision, for he was not a frightened Negro, as most then were, and many still..."
Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies. The reasons are many: the blistering honesty with which he recounts his transformation from a bitter, self-destructive petty criminal into an articulate political activist, the continued relevance of his militant analysis of white racism, and his emphasis on self-respect and self-help for African Americans. And there's the vividness with which he depicts black popular culture--try as he might to criticize those lindy hops at Boston's Roseland dance hall from the perspective of his Muslim faith, he can't help but make them sound pretty wonderful. These are but a few examples. The Autobiography of Malcolm X limns an archetypal journey from ignorance and despair to knowledge and spiritual awakening. When Malcolm tells coauthor Alex Haley, "People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book," he voices the central belief underpinning every attempt to set down a personal story as an example for others. Although many believe his ethic was directly opposed to Martin Luther King Jr.'s during the civil rights struggle of the '60s, the two were not so different. Malcolm may have displayed a most un-Christian distaste for loving his enemies, but he understood with King that love of God and love of self are the necessary first steps on the road to freedom. --Wendy Smith
