Men We Reaped: A Memoir by Jesmyn Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Gorgeous, difficult, heart-breaking memoir by the author of SALVAGE THE BONES. MEN WE REAPED is the account of five tragic deaths in five year's time in Ward's life, but it reads both like an investigation and like an elegy. It took me nearly a month to read this book...it is to be read in carefully calibrated does. It is that potent.
Ward has earned a life-long reader and fan.
