Former US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey—who in 2007 won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for Native Guard—discusses her new memoir (Memorial Drive): a remembrance of her mother’s life, a reckoning with intense grief, and an examination of the racist and sexist power structures that corrode the United States from within. Poignant, timely, and unforgettable, Memorial Drive is Trethewey’s first prose work and a profound tribute to an American life.
