BOOK SYNOPSIS
For humor, read "No point in dad hitting the roof, since kids already landed on it," Smith's recollection of his daughter and her future husband landing a small plane in Florida.
In "Fame [minus 14 minutes and 56 seconds]," Smith is humbled after his fleeting appearance in one of the "Rocky" movies.
For inspiration, read, "No answer at roll call: It was the trying that defined Hank Gathers' life," a tribute to a late Philadelphia schoolboy basketball star.
Smith writes about barbershops, poolrooms and soul food and also about being an eyewitness to history or visiting Nelson Mandela shortly after his prison release, or covering Bill Clinton, or Betty and Qubilah Shabazz.
