Críticas:

"[A] poetic second novel.... [main character] Esch traces in the minutiae of every moment of every scene of her life the thin lines between passion and violence, love and hate, life and death...her voice...[gives] its cast of small lives a huge resonance."--"Publishers Weekly" ""Salvage the Bones" is a novel that will make readers wince at times and tear up at others. Ward gives voice to the forgotten families of the Gulf Coast through lyrical imagery and the type of uncensored authenticity that can only be delivered through the eyes of a child... it is a true testament to the realities of rural poverty. Once the storm hits, you'll find yourself tearing through the book and finishing it with a better sense of Katrina's impact."-- "Bust" "This second novel delivers on and expands the promise of "Where the Line Bleeds"; Jesmyn Ward has claimed her place both as a contemporary witness of life in the rural south and as a descendant of its great originals. This memorable clan deals with the

"The novel's hugeness of heart and fierceness of family grip and hold on like [a] pit bull."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"" ""A pitch-perfect account of struggle and community in the rural South... Though the characters in "Salvage the Bones" face down Hurricane Katrina, the story isn't really about the storm. It's about people facing challenges, and how they band together to overcome adversity."-- "BookPage """ "Searing.... Despite the brutal world it depicts, "Salvage the Bones" is a beautiful read. Ward's redolent prose conjures the magic and menace of the southern landscape."--"Dallas Morning News"

"This book is impossibly beautiful."--OxfordAmerican.org

"Ward uses fearless, toughly lyrical language to convey this family's close-knit tenderness, the sheer bloody-minded difficulty of rural African American life, and what it's like when those hurrican winds sledge-hammer you and the water rises faster than you can stand up. It's an eye-opening heartbreaker that ends in hope. Highl

""This book is impossibly beautiful."--OxfordAmerican.org

"The novel's power comes from the dread of the approaching storm and a pair of violent climaxes.

Reseña del editor:

Winner of the 2011 National Book Award

A hurricane is building over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and Esch's father is growing concerned. A hard drinker, largely absent, he doesn't show concern for much else. Esch and her three brothers are stocking food, but there isn't much to save. Lately, Esch can't keep down what food she gets; she's fourteen and pregnant. Her brother Skeetah is sneaking scraps for his prized pitbull's new litter, dying one by one in the dirt. While brothers Randall and Junior try to stake their claim in a family long on child's play and short on parenting. As the twelve days that comprise the novel's framework yield to the final day and Hurricane Katrina, the unforgettable family at the novel's heart--motherless children sacrificing for each other as they can, protecting and nurturing where love is scarce--pulls itself up to struggle for another day. A wrenching look at the lonesome, brutal, and restrictive realities of rural poverty, Salvage the Bone is muscled with poetry, revelatory, and real.
