Natasha Trethewey was born in Mississippi in the 60s to a black mother and a white father. When she was six, Natasha's parents divorced, and she and her mother moved to Atlanta. There, her mother met the man who would become her second husband, and Natasha's stepfather. While she was still a child, Natasha decided that she would not tell her mother about what her stepfather did when she was not there: the quiet bullying and control, the games of cat and mouse. Her mother kept her own secrets, secrets that grew harder to hide as Natasha came of age. When Natasha was nineteen and away at college, her stepfather shot her mother dead on the driveway outside their home. With penetrating insight and a searing voice that moves from the wrenching to the elegiac, Memorial Drive is a compelling and searching look at a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence, and a piercing glimpse at the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse. Luminous, urgent, and visceral, it cements Trethewey's position as one of the most important voices in America today.

Her exquisite and brutal lyricism as well as her commitment to truth makes Trethewey one of the most important American poets of our time ... A tremendously empathic and enthusiastic force in our nation's bleak period. Her words settle with profound gravity
A glorious example of what results when one listens - and writes - brilliantly . Her work is loved because she refuses to forget those who've been lost and the struggles of those who remain
Trethewey has an insistent intellect and a gift for turning over rich soil
Impassioned but clear-eyed . She is poised to build a powerful legacy . We can look forward to the fresh direction that Trethewey's compass will, inevitably, point us
She reveals how keenly all of us are shaped by loss, and how much America, too, has been forged by the ever-present shard of grief
This is a black woman who has committed an entire life and career to holding a country accountable, despite the weight of her own grief
The wide scope of her interests and her adept handling of form have created an opus of classics both elegant and necessary
A marker in America's conversation on race and gender . A must-read for people interested in where America has been, where it's headed, and how to traverse the crossroads of the country's literature while also perhaps saving their soul at the beginning of this turbulent century
