    The author of this novel has been described by Ann Patchett as ‘one of the most important writers in America today’. Part road trip, part ghost story, Ward’s lyrical third novel explores intergenerational trauma and the shadows that slavery continues to cast over contemporary American life. Set in post-Katrina Mississippi, in the same fictional town as her previous book, Salvage the Bones, which won the 2011 National Book Award, Sing, Unburied, Sing charts the journey of a broken family to collect their father and husband upon his release from prison. Narrated in turn by 13-year-old Jo Jo, who is trying to understand what it means to be a man, and by his reluctant and inattentive mother, Leonie, this is a mesmerising and deeply affecting read.
