Loved it so much that i ordered Eva’s Man on the spot, even if it still waiting on my shelves. I hated her husband for what he did and as the story went i just happened to forgive him realizing how much he meant to her and theirs sure was a genuine love somehow. Given her family background, i assumed that it was hard for her to trust any men no matter how good he could ever be. But can’t we consider her husband’s action as a sign that things had to stop ? maybe it was good foe Corregidora blood not to keep spreading for some more generation…their history is heavy to bear, one has to be very strong to face a lineage and an heritage built in rape and inceste. I really loved it can’t really tell why, maybe it was the story telling, or the revelation of a shameful past that is not so old but yet so unbelievable. Or simply the strength of the main character…it was definitely worth reading for me.
I agree that one of the main reasons she can’t have a decent relationship with a man is because of her mother and grand-mother and their stories. I too have ordered Eva’s Man and can’t wait to get to it! Hope more people will get interested in Mrs. Gayl Jones because she is one hell of a writer.
You have a perfect storytelling voice:)
Thanks Rowena. Maybe all of the stories I read to my daughters. ?
That must have given you lots of practice:)
Yes it did. I had to do all the voices. ?
And you made a lot of great points, loved this. Thanks:)
Thanks again Rowena! Tough review to do. This book is so full of ideas. I’d love to discuss it in detail. I can’t wait to get into her other books. Such a fabulous writer!
I agree! Me too! I like how you got into the black masculinity topic. She definitely is a wonderful writer,
Well she definitely drove it home that the black man doesn’t seem to have his place.
guess I’ll buy this one too, thanks
You better! It’s the bomb in literary and feminist fiction! Can’t wait to get to Eva’s Man and Mosquito!?
