Why read it?

1 author picked Always a Reckoning and Other Poems as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

During one of my interviews, Carter told me that he had trouble expressing his emotions outside of his poetry. While Carter is not an outstanding poet, he succeeds here in offering glimpses of his inner life and fraught race relations in the American South. And he explores his relationship with his father, wife, son and others.

From Jonathan's list on Jimmy Carter.
