    One thought on “Mama Can't Raise No Man”

    1. Wow. I don't know what to say. Ends with a jaw dropping twist. It is such a easy read and it grips you from the start. I found myself laughing throughout the book (volunteer lollipop man) but i also found my self for once siding with the young black man. Thats the beauty of this book. The author gave me insight into different worlds. I hope the author realises it wasn't words he put into a book but someone's reality. That right there is a gift. It's so good i felt it deserved my 1st goodread rev [...]

    2. Mama Can't Raise No ManIn A Nutshell: Duane, a young black man is sentenced to his third term in prison. And that gives him time to reflect on his life and the reader insight into black masculinity, street life, and gang culture. It's enlightening, sad and life-affirming. The exaggeration in places does not make the story any less compelling.The Plot: Duane Ricketts has taken the fall for a crime he did not commit this time, but his 'Younger' did. But it's the code of the road not to tell. His s [...]

    3. Breathtaking debut novel told in letters between a young Black man in prison and his friends and family (with a few court transcripts.) The voice of every character is stunning, while the book is an entertaining, sometimes heartbreaking, and always deeply thought-provoking story of Black masculinity, injustice, life in prison and on the streets, and of being the child of a single mother. It builds to an incredible climax - a truly superb read.

    4. An interesting representation of masculinity, especially that of a fatherless child living on the road in London. I am so incredibly excited to be going to a talk from Travis this month after finishing the book and I cannot wait to read his other book and anything else her writes.

    5. Very well written. Fresh format and voice that brought a story I felt I hadn't seen from this particular angle. Adept rendering of black male perspective as it relates to incarcerations, familial bonds, and responsibility. Would love to read more by this author

    6. What amazing read, highly recommended as it was deep, emotional and invigorating. I didn't want to put the book down.

    7. This book is powerful and perception-changing, the kind of book that will stay with you long after you have finished reading it.I am amazed that the author managed to convey such a deep and emotive story through letters and transcripts alone; this could have made the narrative bland but instead it painted a picture so vivid that I began to feel like each character was a friend, someone I knew intimately. Each character had depth and changed subtly as the story progressed but without losing the e [...]
