Jesmyn Ward is a stand out Author! Brilliant writing style, I felt like I was near this family and had to live through the hurricane to reach the end of the book. Her complex characters live in poverty. They range from brilliant, caring then at times animal like. Esch often used Greek mythology to relate to her, family, friends and her surrounding. This family could be labeled dysfunctional. Esch had no role models for growing up other than men and boys. In the end strong family/friend bonds shine through. Maybe it is enough....
