It was the death of her 19-year-old brother at the hands of a drunken driver that inspired Jesmyn West to become a writer. Unfortunately, that spur was not the only tragic loss of a young black man from her Mississippi hometown that affected her life. In this insightful, beautifully written memoir, she pays poignant tribute to five "men we reaped." The first nonfiction work by the 2011 National Book Award winner.
