Overview

"Insightful…Brings one of our finest—and most complicated—poets into view…Raw and honest." —Los Angeles Review of Books

In this transcendent memoir, grounded in tribal myth and ancestry, music and poetry, Joy Harjo details her journey to becoming a poet. Born in Oklahoma, the end place of the Trail of Tears, Harjo grew up learning to dodge an abusive stepfather by finding shelter in her imagination, a deep spiritual life, and connection with the natural world. Narrating the complexities of betrayal and love, Crazy Brave is a haunting, visionary memoir about family and the breaking apart necessary in finding a voice.

Very interesting in the beginning, however, I felt let-down toward the end. She seemed to be telling her story but at times it seemed to be without the feeling one deeply feels when really hurt inside.
