How could this gentleman possibly find love elusive? Common brings conscious verses, righteousness, earthly wisdom, and honesty.
Women complain about men guarding their emotions as if they have none. Here, Common does quite the opposite. He generously shares his heart, most profound thoughts, and revelations of love addiction, fear of commitment, feelings of abandonment, and intense trauma. Here for all to see, barring fear of scrutiny, he dares mull over, dissect, analyze, reflect, and dig for whatever truths he can find that can serve to explain to him—what love means, what love requires, what love does. What is love’s authentic reward? Love's action.
As an actor, he can portray the king, the handsome prince, or warrior who'll save the day. He is as captivating in this tome as he is on the big screen. Let Love Have the Last Word: A Memoir is beautifully-written, somber introspection, offering sobering hope.
