I'll Ask You Three Times, Are You OK? Summary


I'll Ask You Three Times, Are You OK? by Naomi Shihab Nye

"I am a poet," I said. "It is my destiny to do strange things."

My father gripped the wheel of his car. "I am the chauffeur for foolishness."

We said no more.

Foolhardy missions. Life-altering conversations. Gifts--given and received. Loss. Getting lost. Wisdom delivered before dawn and deep into the night. Love and kissing (not necessarily in that order). Laughter. Rides on the edge. Roses. Ghosts.

As a traveling poet and visiting teacher, Naomi Shihab Nye has spent a considerable amount of time in cars, both driving and being driven. Her observations, stories, encounters, and escapades--and the kernels of truth she gathers from them--are laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving, and unforgettable. Buckle up.
