Don’t miss the deeply important book that Jesmyn Ward calls “a perfect song.” In its starred review, Library Journal says of Daniel Black’s DON’T CRY FOR ME [Hanover Square, 2/1]:
“In his introduction to this epistolary novel, Black (They Tell Me of a Home) says, “More than anything, I want readers to reconsider the capacity of our fathers’ hearts,” and it is precisely such heartfelt reconsideration that he delivers…. What results is the story of a complex father-son relationship and a man transformed, even at this late moment. VERDICT A deeply perceptive evocation of what it has meant to be a man and especially a Black man in the United States, all the more affecting for not being shouted out but told with quiet, sturdy intimacy.”
