About The Book


'...And then we heard the rain falling, and that was the drops of blood falling; and whenwe came to get the crops, it was dead men that we reaped.' Harriet TubmanJesmyn Ward's acclaimed memoir shines a light on the community she comes from, inthe small town of DeLisle, Mississippi, a place of quiet beauty and fierce attachment.

Here, in the space of four years, she lost five young men dear to her, including herbeloved brother - to accidents, murder and suicide. Their deaths were seeminglyunconnected, yet their lives had been connected, by identity and place, and as Jesmyndealt with these losses, she came to a staggering truth: These young men diedbecause of who they were and the place they were from, because racism and economicstruggle breed a certain kind of bad luck.

The agonising reality brought Jesmyn to write, at last, their true stories and her own.Men We Reaped opens up a parallel universe, yet it points to problems whose roots arewoven into the soil under all our feet. This indispensable American memoir is destinedto become a classic.
