Let Love Have the Last Word: A Memoir
by Common with Mensah Demary
Common believes that the phrase "let love have the last word" is not just a declaration; it is a statement of purpose, a daily promise.
Touching on God, self-love, partners, children, family, and community, Common explores the core tenets of love to help others understand what it means to receive and to give love. He moves from the personal -- writing about his daughter, to whom he wants to be a better father -- to the universal, where he observes that societal fractures under issues of race and politics.
