Description
"Imprisoned for the bizarre murder of her lover, Eva Medina Canada recalls a life tormented by sexual abuse and emotional violence. Eva's Man is Gayl Jones's second novel. Imprisoned for the brutal and bizarre murder of her lover, Eva Medina Canada recalls a life tormented by sexual abuse and emotional violence. Eva reveals her own pain and traumas through fragmented, often anachronistic memories, but she rarely describes the violence she commits herself. Through repeated retellings of the same incidents, each time with slight variations, we come to understand that Eva's memory and sense of self are disintegrating. The tension between Eva's status as a survivor and a perpetrator permeates the book. Eva's Man portrays the challenge of communicating truthfully, or even satisfyingly, about what it feels like--what it means--to live through trauma. Tragic and profoundly thought-provoking, Eva's Man is Gayl Jones's second novel. It was originally acquired and edited by Toni Morrison."--,Provided by publisher
Description
"Eva's Man is a gripping psychological portrait of a woman unable to love for fear of pain. Imprisoned for the bizarre murder of her lover, Eva Median Canada weaves together memory and fantasy to reveal a life tormented by the brutality of sexual abuse and emotional silence. Brilliantly experimenting with language, Jones infuses her graphic and powerful narrative of the triple yoke of race, class, and gender with a rich musical and oral idiom."--Amazon.com.
