DescriptionThe Best American Novelist Whose Name You May Not Know--Calvin Baker, The Atlantic A literary giant, and one of my absolute favourite writers -TAYARI JONES, author of AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE An American writer with a powerful sense of vital inheritance, of history in
the blood. -John Updike, The New Yorker Eva's Man is a gripping psychological portrait of a woman unable to love for fear of pain. Imprisoned for the bizarre murder of her lover, Eva Median Canada weaves together memory and fantasy to reveal a life tormented by the brutality of sexual abuse and emotional silence. Brilliantly experimenting with language, Jones infuses her graphic and powerful narrative of the triple yoke of race, class, and gender with a rich musical and oral idiom.
