Jesmyn Ward on NPR

Readers to my blog will know by now that I loved Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward, a book which won the 2011 National Book Award (read my review). This is not an easy book to read, but it was so incredibly written, so honest, and so powerful that I have continued to want to share it with other readers who love literary fiction.

When I saw that NPR was interviewing Ward about the novel, I was excited to listen to her speak. This interview gives terrific insight into Ward’s work on the book, and so I wanted to share it. A transcript of the interview may be found on NPR’s site here.
