A Woman's Mourning Song by Bell Hooks

A book of essays and poems: an interesting essay about the cultural approach to death and dying by Africans and Afro-Americans, along with Hooks' own experiences as a child growing up in Kentucky; and a series of poems reflecting Hooks' personal mournings for the loss of loved ones, self, and the resulting horrors of war. Not a light read, but powerful.
