I need to process this more but I can say I think anyone who has an opportunity to read this book should. Important, powerful, and beautifully written. Gorgeous prose.
Note: I received a signed copy of this book from the publisher at ALA Annual 2019.
Banned Book resolution read. Good and heavy.
I listened to this book in two sittings. Would have been one if I hadn’t started so late at night! This is the finest book I’ve heard in as long as I can remember and deserves all the praise it has. The audiobook was quite powerful itself because it was read by author. Laymon is so earnest and vulnerable throughout the memoir that it feels nearly intrusive to be listening. He is a gifted writer with a unique style. The book was also refreshing as it’s at once a deeply personal memoir of a man yet it gives substantial real estate to the lives, influence, and challenges faced by women, specifically black women.

"Laymon writes eloquently and honestly about the physical manifestations of violence, grief, trauma, and abuse on his own body. He writes of his own eating disorder and gambling addiction as well as similar issues that run throughout his family. Through self-exploration, storytelling, and honest conversation with family and friends, Heavy seeks to bring what has been hidden into the light and to reckon with all of its myriad sources, from the most intimate--a mother-child relationship--to the most universal--a society that has undervalued and abused black bodies for centuries"--
