Celebrated writer/director/actor Poitier returns with a third memoir (following 1980's This Life and 2000's The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography ) detailing his remarkable story and offering his own take on some of life's most ponderous questions. Written as a set of letters to his great granddaughter, Life Beyond Measure is bursting at the seams with inspirational stories aimed to advise and motivate us all. His writing is deep, his views are that of a wise man who has seen the world from every angle. Poitier's classical, firm and rolling voice is entirely engaging, and listeners will find themselves yearning for more. A HarperOne hardcover. (May)
