With beautifully descriptive narrative, Ward depicts a portrait of a multi-generational, mixed family in the deep South. Her captivating novel addresses the reality of social differences and their lasting effects via shifting points of view, dialectical narration, and the intertwining of figures from the main characters’ pasts. Sing, Unburied, Sing is must-read for its lyrical writing and a should-read for its nuanced call to attention of all those privileges that seem closeted or obscure and its refusal to shy away from the difficulties of past lives.
