Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward (60/52)

Jojo is struggling to understand what it means to be a man as his father is released from prison, his mother’s father is quiet and stoic, and his father’s father can’t stand the sight of him. Ward writes poetically of the challenges between fathers and sons. She explores the power of presence, the unburied legacies of the South’s past and the unbroken cycle of love. This is a beautiful book as it is written with heart and an overwhelming sense of hope. Strongly recommend.
