Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward: A Review

Men We Reaped: A MemoirMen 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 is to be read in carefully calibrated does. It is that potent.

Ward has earned a life-long reader and fan.
