Reviews

An important, and perhaps even essential, book. San Francisco Chronicle [Ward] chronicles our American story in language that is raw, beautiful and dangerous ... [Her] singular voice and her full embrace of her anger and sorrow set this work apart from those that have trodden similar ground. The New York Times Book Review Heart-wrenching ... A brilliant book about beauty and death ... at once a coming-of-age story and a kind of mourning song ... filled [with] intimate and familial moments, each described with the passion and precision of the polished novelist Ward has become ... Ward is one of those rare writers who's traveled across America's deepening class rift with her sense of truth intact. Los Angeles Times A memoir that is as searing as her fiction, as poignant and as timely ... in a country that is supposed to be post racial but still seems hell-bent on the epidemic destruction of young black men. -- Edwidge Danticat The Progressive A memoir that, in plainsong prose punctuated with sudden poetic flashes, schools us in the unforgiving experiences from which [Ward] has drawn her triumphal fiction ... Unvarnished and penetrating. Elle
