The heart of Sing, Unburied, Sing is story — the yearning for a narrative to help us understand ourselves, the pain of the gaps we’ll never fill, the truths that are failed by words and must be translated through ritual and song. In Ward’s Mississippi, 13-year-old Jojo is heavy with a story he never asked for, but which he inherited and must make sense of nevertheless. He does this by listening: to his grandfather’s stories about being in a prison that treated him like a slave; to the hushed conversations between his black mother and the white father whose family won’t acknowledge him; to the generations-old spiritual practices of his dying grandmother; to the ghosts only he and his little sister can see, those of his uncle, a young boy, and the many nameless black Southerners whose stories died with them. Ward’s writing throbs with life, grief, and love, and her National Book Award–winning book is the kind that makes you ache to return to it. —AR
