Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
"Sing, Unburied, Sing is many things: a road novel, a slender epic of three generations and the ghosts that haunt them, and a portrait of what ordinary folk in dire circumstances cleave to as well as what they — and perhaps we all — are trying to outrun.” —New York Times Book Review
This heartbreaking, powerful novel of a young black Mississippi boy raised by his grandparents in dire circumstances was the winner of the National Book Award for Fiction (2017), a New York Times ‘Top 10’ of 2017, a Time Magazine Best Novel of the Year (2017), a Finalist for the Kirkus Prize, and a Finalist for the Andrew Carnegie Medal.
