Ada Calhoun's "vexed but deceptively tender memoir," Also a Poet: Frank O'Hara, My Father, and Me is one of the best books reviewed this week, along with Sam J. Miller's Boys, Beasts, and Men, a collection of stories "that often put a fantastical twist on finding queer love or belonging"; and Kapaemahu, which began as an award-winning film about a quartet of mahu healers who come to Waikiki, now transformed into a "spectacular picture book"; plus much more!

Louis Bayard discusses in The Writer's Life how he came upon the historical figure of Lem Billings, and his imagined role in bringing together John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier in Jackie & Me.
