If you want an immersive story that shines light onto one family’s past and present, I highly recommend Sing, Unburied, Sing. The story is told through the eyes of a young boy, Jojo, and his mother, Leonie. From the start, there is a haunted atmosphere of loss, an absence of someone who should be there, but that someone is different for each of them. Leonie is a drug addict and neglectful mother, Pop, his grandfather, teaches Jojo how to work the farm and tells him about the harsh days when he was in Parchman Penitentiary. Pop’s sadness is both for the past and the present, as his wife is dying of cancer. Meanwhile, Leonie is preparing to drive across the state to meet Michael, her lover, and father of her children, when he gets out of jail. And she wants to take Jojo and his little sister Kayla with her.

Sing, Unburied, Sing is a story of love, loss, family, the complex relationship between parents and children, how different communities find it difficult to tolerate each other and struggle to live with each other and inflict pain on each other, the questionable choices we make as flawed human beings, the redemption that might be open to us. It is no surprise that it won the National Book Award and was selected as Book of the Year by The New York Times amongst others.
