Staff Reviews


This epic novel keens, roars and destroys with the ferocity of the hurricane it portrays. Jesmyn Ward takes on Homer, Faulkner and Katrina and wins. Brilliant and harrowing.

— Cheryl

Summer 2012 Reading Group


“Ward writes with a power and depth of feeling that is both rare and exhilarating. Her novel about 12 days in the life of a poor black family living on the Mississippi coast as a hurricane gathers in the gulf displays the gifts of a writer with exceptional skill and no fear. The characters seem almost to claw their way off the pages, so vividly has Jesmyn Ward created them. This is a novel of flesh and blood, heart and soul, dreams and terrors that I will not soon forget.”
— Stan Hynds, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center, VT
