Now that I‘m thinking in it, I think I finished this before I listened to Savage the Bones, and that‘s what sparked the re-read/listen (not that it needs justification). Ward‘s lyrical writing has always reminded me of Faulkner, and like the characters in Yoknapatawpha pepper various books, so do characters from one book, walkthrough in another books.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I've got to read all of her books!! I loved Sing! 3mo
Plaidsticks @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yes! Sing is one of my favorites. Right after I read a copy, I immediately got an audio copy and promptly listened to it twice. 3mo

Like a twin study in medicine serves to highlight the role of genetics in outcomes, this story shows the twins aren‘t predetermined to the same adult life. The seemingly minor differences in their relationships and experiences start them down different paths even in the first few months of adulthood. This is an intimate story told in the details and routine of their lives as emerging adults.

Jesmyn Ward can WRITE! This is the third book I have read of hers, and it is the first in the trilogy that includes Salvage the Bones and Sing, Unburied, Sing. If you have read those two, I HIGHLY recommend reading this one. The grittiness of poverty and drugs combined with the strong bonds of familial love resonate strongly in all of her books, and this one is no exception. I will read anything by Ward. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 👇

EmilyM Interestingly enough, this is the third in her trilogy but she wrote it first. One of the characters mentions a hurricane that is a few weeks away and I wonder if that is Hurricane Katrina, and a reference to Salvage the Bones. 13mo

Thank you so much @Chelleo for your wonderful gift! I love the socks, but as a born Clevelander I was especially excited to see the buckeyes! What incredible gifts! #sockswap thanks to @JPeterson for organizing!

Chelleo Gotta love Buckeyes! I hope they didn‘t melt. I was a little worried about that. 🤗 2y

I liked this book. Very tonal, as her writing often is. A story taking place in the south and is very much of its location. The summer after twin boys graduate from high school, they look to get jobs and find their way in the world.

@Jas16 woah what a challenge to pick fav all time literary siblings! That may be too daunting for me so I stuck with the last book which I thought handled the sibling relationship (twins no less!) with grace and expert care as it tracks these twins‘ diverging paths as adulthood looms. I loved this debut which marked Ward as a talent to watch and she hasn‘t let readers down yet (Sing, Unburied, Sing was 1 of my favs last year). #jasuary16

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I just ordered this one!!! 2y

Ward is an incredible writer and I have so far enjoyed all her books. Unfortunately this one is me least favorite... Even in her debut novel she brings the characters and their surroundings to life, but in this book I was missing an arc of suspense, the trail that is leading me through the story.

Every other Jesmyn Ward novel was checked out in my whole library system, so I snagged her debut. Reading it from my job at the Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico, overlooking the shipyard, while my main character work in the docks on the Gulf of Mexico. #ambiance

Carleneishere Update: in one of the field trips we offer, we teach the kids that bauxite (an ingredient in aluminum) and frozen poultry are major exports in the Port of Mobile. Jesmyn Ward mentions both casually in the novel! A+ for research and accuracy! 2y

Re-reading all of Jesmyn Ward's books before the release of her newest book in September!! I'm reading one a month in the order they were released.
