When I review books for EJOLTs, my main purpose is to share how I think other Living Theory researchers might find the text helpful in their research, what common elements we share and how I might continue an educational conversation with the authors. I will share where I found resonance with the ideas inherent in this text on life writing, autobiography and literary métissage which was a gift from Judy McBride. Reading the book brought back memories of ICTR 2003 in Vancouver and the chapter that Jack and I wrote after the conference (Whitehead & Delong, 2003). I met Carl Leggo there and bought a book of his poems; unfortunately, he is not with us anymore. Judy tells me that she began writing poems after she started her work in métissage so maybe there is hope for me.
