    Mitchell Jackson’s writing talent is evident in Survival Math Notes on an All American Family I am struggling with how to clearly express my thoughts on this book and have read other reviews that capture it well Survival Math switches freuently between casual and formal tones with a solid dose of “stream of consciousness” style which is not one I knowingly opt into reading I appreciate the difficult environment Jackson grew up in and made effort to overcome yet struggled to feel for him in parts of the book most notably in his treatment toward according to him the plethora of women he engaged with I hoped to like this than I actually did — I found the various survivor files to be the most impactful parts

    Wow wow wow January isn’t even over and I’ve already found one of my top reads of 2019 Thank you Scribner for gifting me a free copy of Survival Math It will be out in March ⁣⁣I have so much to say about this book but I don’t even think I can do it justice I was gripped by every single word Jackson accounts his life growing up in Portland Oregon; a life characterized by poverty drugs violence and struggle The title of the book comes from the calculations Jackson had to make to survive his circumstances Throughout the book Jackson has included Survival Files short accounts of the lives of men in his family and what they had to do to survive as well ⁣⁣Survival Math is intimate and interrogating of the choices both Jackson and his family members had to make to survive These are stories not meant for us to judge we are to listen and hopefully to learn What makes Jackson’s examination of these topics so impactful is the combination of candor and voice Many writers have uniue voices but Jackson’s is a blend of intellectuality and the suaveness he learned from the hustlers that marked his life in Portland; an observation he himself points out ⁣As for candor Jackson observes his own role in the sins of his community his examination of how he has hurt women is especially compelling There is nothing holier than thou about Jackson’s writing he may have survived his circumstances but he is cognizant of the fact that his circumstances made him the writer he is today⁣⁣Tears fell at different points while reading this I can’t really pinpoint the exact emotion I was feeling that produced this response from me it wasn’t pity or sadness it was just something about Jackson’s writing that seeped into me and affected me ⁣⁣There’s a lesson here in these pages that Jackson makes clear to readers that I hope you too will realize when you read this book we have the ability to help others reframe how they see themselves what they see in their futures what they believe is attainable Any writer who can make you recognize that is a damn good writer to me

    My nonfiction reads have been top notch so far this year Survival Math Notes on an All American Family by Mitchell S Jackson is a phenomenal book experience for me the reader Telling his story in his uniue writing style Jackson made me feel like he was having a conversation with over coffee His story of growing up Portland Oregon and the struggles as a black man its not new coming from a black woman who’s had her share of growing in a predominately white area but it’s how he told his story just sucked me into this book Centering not only his struggles but also the generations of his families was a genius Violence prison and drugs all of this played a big part of who he was and where he’s going I personally have never been to Portland Oregon so reading what life was like for him really intrigued me Jackson is an exceptional writer and this book is truly phenomenal I will read any book that Jackson puts out in the Future Thank you Netgalley scribnerbooks for the e copy of this book

    35⭐ rounded upThis is a tough review to write While I loved Jackson's storytelling and honesty I really struggled with the format of this book I enjoyed the memoir aspects and I think I expected this to be a full memoir However a lot of this book had an academic tone which is absolutely perfect for the right reader and some parts with a lot of historical or mythological background made me feel like I was in school Everything felt disconnected for me since there were so many different tones in this book I had a hard time staying focused I think I would have had a better time with the book if it would have been a straight memoir I was interested in hearing of Jackson's story and I appreciate the parts that he shared with us The Survivor Files sections were my favorite part They were so personal and I liked the way that the stories were told My review might not be very helpful I highly recommend checking out some of the other reviews it seems like a lot of other people had an easier time reading this one than I did Thank you so much to Scribner for sending me a copy of Survival Math to review

    scribnerbooks #partner | ✍🏽 mini•reviewIt’s an historical exploration into Black Portland it’s also a deep encompassing look into Mitchell Jackson’s family history It’s a collection of essays sprinkled with poems and what the author deemed as “Survivor Files” You see all the black men on the cover? side note 📝 the cover is brilliant btw — y’all know I love a good cover well the faces you see are the men in Jackson’s life his brothers uncles cousins a grandfather and a nephew and they make up the ‘Survivor Files’ which is a short narrative about their lifeOne thing I loved about this is the author’s candidness and self reflection There was so many gems that the author dropped in his prose Also the construction which is nonlinear and don’t let this stop you from picking it up it’s composed so well I think it compliments the essay collection perfectlyhttpswwwinstagramcomabsorbedinp

    Mitch Jackson has one of the most uniue prose styles I've ever read This memoir manages to be engrossing diffuse telling his own story his family's story and the stories of other African American men in his community Like his debut novel The Residue Years this book is at times wrenching to read It kept me up at night

    I approached this book fully open to hearing a fresh voice and perhaps a new perspective I would describe this book as rapper meets literature professor lyrically and poetically written Hence the 2 star review However I consider the content and the message to be a waste of time I was staying open minded but the further I progressed in this book the I became convinced that this author not only was but definitely still is a manipulative hustler The final chapter “Epilogue” confirmed it His weak apologies about how he could be a better father and his elaborate explanation of how he went above and beyond to attend a father daughter dance only showed me how little he thinks it takes to be a good father I’m sure he imagines his daughter being so impressed with his writing success and so touched by his declarations of love that she’ll forgive all his transgressions just like he brags about manipulating so many other women before her Wowhe really is good at making himself sound repentant while continuing to inflate his own ego I also think he’s playing both sides He wants to be lauded by the type of people who will read and praise this book give him grantsscholarshipsdegreesjobsspeaking engagements etc but meanwhile still wants to retain his street credibility After listening to his TED Talk and a very different description of his encounter with “Stitches” I’m left wondering if some of his stories aren’t even true I wouldn’t be surprised to find out he hasn’t had nearly as many women in his life as he claims nor the thug life he proclaims and that it has all been invented or inflated What would stop someone of his character from telling lies just to sell books?

    Instead of writing to you about his life story Mitchell S Jackson’s prose feels like he is having a conversation about his life with the reader He talks about not only his struggles but generations of his families struggles with violence prison and drugs It truly is a tale of overcoming your surroundings and bettering oneself as a person
