Description
(Winner of the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction) A hurricane is threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi—Esch's hard-drinking father can feel it in his bones—and Esch and her brothers are trying to prepare, though each has his own worries. And Esch, fifteen and motherless, has just realized she's pregnant, in this "strikingly beautiful ... astonishingly brave" (SFChronicle) novel by Mississippian Jesmyn Ward.

"A taut, wily novel, smartly plotted and voluptuously written.... It's an old story—of family honor, revenge, disaster—and it's a good one.... [Ward] plays deftly with her reader's expectations: where we expect violence, she gives us sweetness. When we brace for beauty, she gives us blood."—NYTBR
