Summary Sing, Unburied, Sing

Summary Sing, Unburied, Sing ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Man When the white father of Leonie’s children is released from prison she packs her kids and a friend into her car and sets out across the state for Parchman farm the Mississippi State Penitentiary on a journey rife with danger and promise Sing Unburied Sing grapples with the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power and limitations of the bonds of family Rich with Ward’s distinctive musical language Sing Unburied Sing is a majestic new work and an essential contribution to American literatu. 35 starsWell this was certainly an intense beautifully written novel I have to admit I went into this with some very high expectations but also with a bit of reluctance I have seen much praise lavished on this book and deservedly so despite my lower ranking compared with many of my trusted and much respected Goodreads friends I also had prior knowledge of a fairly large dose of magical realism which can sometimes muddy my enjoyment of a book However I took the plunge grabbed a copy and immersed myself in the ugly reality of poverty racism drug addiction and grief Every major character in this book is haunted by either physical ghosts or his or her own imaginary but all too real demons from a troubled past My heart bled for thirteen year old Jojo and little sister Kayla who have been all but bodily abandoned by their emotionally detached and drug addicted mother Leonie Raised by Mam and Pop the children are still fortunate enough to be given a fairly healthy dose of love and compassion from these devoted grandparents Jojo who is forced to grow up so fast at such a tender age admires his grandfather and aspires to emulate him and earn his respect I liked most of the things Pop did liked the way he stood when he spoke like the way he combed his hair back straight from his face and slicked it down so he looked like an Indian in the books we read in school on the Choctaw and Creek liked the way he let me sit in his lap and drive his tractor around the back liked the way he ate even fast and neat liked the stories he told me before I went to sleep And stories did he tell In particular Pop shares one story involving his time spent in the penitentiary up in Parchman But there are holes in this story that Jojo longs to have filled in Mam grieving the wrongful death of her son years ago is now on her own end of life journey as the cancer that once tried to claim her has now returned with a vengeance She s too sick with the cancer that came and left and returned steady as the rising and sinking of the marsh water in the bayou with the moonUpon hearing that Jojo and Kayla s father Michael is to be freed after a three year stint of his own up at Parchman Leonie decides to pack up her kids to greet him on his day of release Jesmyn Ward then takes the reader along with Leonie a fellow junkie named Misty and the children on a ride through Mississippi to the gates of the state penitentiary Not only do we witness a physical drive through the state but the remainder of the book reflects a spiritual journey as well This is where I lost my connection with the novel The story becomes increasingly brutal to read with so many poor decisions on the part of the mother the friend and eventually the father as well I see dead people I could not get the echo of those words from M Night Shyamalan s 1999 movie The Sixth Sense out of my head from this point forward I know this portion of the book wasn t meant to sit well with the reader but I just felt detached Perhaps it jumped back and forth a bit too much between narrators or perhaps it was the ghostly voices that tormented me Much of the writing itself I found stunning yet I can t uite pin down what unfastened me from the narrative I can t say I loved Sing Unburied Sing yet I hugely appreciated it Despite the great sense of loss and the feeling of hopelessness in the face of such hardship in a place steeped with injustice there is yet a uality of redemption that I cannot deny as being remarkable I just had a hard time reading it and was not disappointed when having to set it aside freuently I will read of Ms Ward s work in the future

Beautifully written So many layers I don t know that there is another writer who captures the complexities of the south and the legacies of racism as well as Ward This is a brilliant novel But also I did want the characters and the overall narrative to be fully developed or perhaps multi dimensional An absolute must read regardless
