Just getting around to reading this novel, first published in 2011.
It‘s raw, relentless, tender, terrible. Raw, relentless, tender, terrible. Raw, relentless, tender, terrible. #jesmynward #hurricanekatrina #sauvageMS

Lindy And after all that, it‘s very rewarding. 🏆 1y
Lesliereads @Lindy Agreed! Despite my description, reading this book does not inspire pity, but something more fortifying. 1y

Just a tiny book in between keeping busy. I love Jesmyn Ward‘s style, and I‘m so glad we‘re expanding our library‘s collection to better represent more Black authors. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #navigateyourstars #jesmynward #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackgirlmagic #commencementspeech #tulaneuniversity

I confess, this author is new to me; this one has now been added to the TBR.
