Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward
Salvage the Bones

Shaun P Kenney, January 3, 2012

What a great year for the National Book Awards in Fiction! This is an AWESOME book by a writer with a MONSTER talent, too! Folks and themes (i.e., the importance of family) that I care about.

I would not want to be on the board or panel of judges who have to decide who wins the National Book Award. I've read three (3) of the five (5) nominees and I was truly impressed. This is a great addition to that nomination. Kudos to the National Book Award panelists and to Jesmyn Ward. Well-deserved Award!
