Because of A Woman: Malanda Jean-Claude
In Because of a Woman, Malanda struggles with vulnerability and fights love at every angle due to the failure to reciprocate. His fear of commitment doesn't allow him to settle in one place until he loses everything. Whether it's lost love, finding yourself or seeking companionship in lonely places - this is for you. Delivered with witty metaphors, Malanda allows for his readers to embark on a journey with him. Every page is a layer of truth as he fights to understand himself and his counterparts, redefining what it is to be a man in a 'stoic-male' society.
The first book to be checked-in to Leizey's Library is this work of poetry by Malanda Jean-Claude. As one of my favorite poets, Malanda Jean-Claude's first book, Because of A Woman, was definitely an investment worth making. Even if you can't relate to his story of lost love (though you probably can), you will feel every emotion that pours off the pages. You can purchase his book on overlyxclusive.bigcartel.com or Apple iBooks. If you are looking for some daily inspiration, also follow his Twitter account (@overlyxclusive).
