Sing, Unburied, Sing


Sing, Unburied, Sing


by Jesmyn Ward

*National Book Award Winner in Fiction*

"My favorite fiction of the past year is Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied, Sing. This National Books Award winner deserves every accolade it can gather. It's basically a road trip through Lousiana delta country, with characters both living and dead. Ward's gift is giving voices to a range of characters old, young, prisoner, free, lovers, and haters. Ward is one of the best American writers, Southern or otherwise." —Sue

In Jesmyn Ward's first novel since her National Book Award-winning Salvage the Bones, this singular American writer brings the archetypal road novel into rural twenty-first-century America. An intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, Sing, Unburied, Sing journeys through Mississippi's past and present, examining the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power--and limitations--of family bonds.
