    PDF/EPUB Jesmyn Ward ë Men We Reaped PDF/EPUB Ö Men We Kindle - ë reaped book, Men We epub, Men We Reaped PDFEPUBThis is a book about grief about grief that is unending and wide reaching It's also a memoir about rural poverty and race and the all too inevitable conclusions to the lives of five young men in Ward's life The prose is bursting with pain and beauty and truth This is a book everyone should read Where it falls short is that it doesn't do enough to rise above the grief Ward only briefly addresses the issues of race and poverty and how they indelibly shape too many lives particularly in the rural South Instead that the culpri

    PDF/EPUB Jesmyn Ward ë Men We Reaped PDF/EPUB Ö Men We Kindle - ë reaped book, Men We epub, Men We Reaped PDFEPUBMeditative and moving Jesmyn Ward's memoir places personal tragedy against the backdrop of systemic racism and poverty Ward alternates between recounting her childhood in rural Mississippi and sketching biographies of five young Black men she intimately knew all who died within the span of four years Each chapter consists of a series of loosely connected vignettes written in plain but powerful prose The book's associative structure and accessible language would make it a swift read were it not for the pain of the stories Ward tells Overdose murder suicide and a pair of fatal accidents are juxtaposed against the hardships Ward herself faced as a working class girl growing up in a virulently anti Black state The memoir isn't without some flaws as several have noted; at times it moves too uickly and the author could have far explicitly tied the deaths of her loved ones to the poisonous effects of white supremacy in America But Ward's grasp on narrative is astounding her de

    PDF/EPUB Jesmyn Ward ë Men We Reaped PDF/EPUB Ö Men We Kindle - ë reaped book, Men We epub, Men We Reaped PDFEPUB111713 Another memoir? Too bad as the Bhutan one is tough to follow Still even on its own MWR is weak and inarticulate I think Ward's memoir has two major problems First she has not fully processed her grief and anger about the deaths in a relatively short span of time of five of her relatives and friends all young black men in the South And second she seems to be trying to conflate that very personal intimate and difficult story with a much larger tirade against the tragedy and injustice perpetrated upon blacks in the South This seems an almost impossible task even for a experienced writer one who has managed to process and contextualize her own experience Ward is not yet up to the taskOh dear I feel bad saying this; she has not had an easy time of it I am sympathet
