Men we reaped : a memoir by Jesmyn Ward ( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In five years, Jesmyn Ward lost five young men in her life: to drugs, accidents, suicide, and the bad luck that can follow people who live in poverty, particularly black men. Dealing with these losses, one after another, made Jesmyn ask the question: Why? And as she began to write about the experience of living through all the dying, she realized the truth. Her brother and her friends all died because of who they were and where they were from, because they lived with a history of racism and economic struggle that fostered drug addiction and the dissolution of family and relationships
Vor dem Sturm by Jesmyn Ward ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ein Hurrikan braut sich über dem Mississippi-Delta zusammen, aber Esch und ihre drei Brüder, die mit dem Vater in einer zusammengezimmerten Hütte am Rande des Waldes inmitten von Hühnern und alten Autowracks leben, haben noch andere Sorgen. Mit kleinen Diebstählen und viel Liebe versucht Skeetah, die neugeborenen Welpen seiner Pitbull-Hündin China durchzubringen. Randall will Basketballprofi werden, aber zugleich müssen er und Esch sich um Junior, den Jüngsten, kümmern, dem wie allen die Mutter fehlt, die bei seiner Geburt gestorben ist. Da merkt die Fünfzehnjährige, dass sie schwanger ist - von Randalls bestem Freund, der mit einer anderen zusammenlebt. Wem kann man sich anvertrauen, wenn kaum einer für sich selbst sorgen kann? Und doch stehen die Geschwister, wortlos und mit kleinen Gesten, unverbrüchlich füreinander ein. Versuchen, ohne Geld Vorräte anzulegen, mit Treibholz das Haus sturmfest zu machen. Als die zwölf Tage, die den Rahmen für den Roman bilden, zu einem dramatischen Abschluss kommen, sammelt die Familie ihre Kräfte, um einem neuen Tag ins Gesicht zu sehen. Vor dem Sturm ist ein bewegender, großherziger Roman über Familienbande in einer Welt, in der es nur wenig Liebe gibt, über Hilfe und Gemeinschaft unter widrigsten Umständen. Lebensnah und voller Poesie, wirft die unvergessliche Geschichte einer bedrohten Familie angesichts eines Jahrhundertorkans ein Schlaglicht auf die Wirklichkeit eines anderen, bitterarmen Amerika
