Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
Scott’s first review of the year
really liked it
I can tell why this book is so loved by so many. It’s a wonderfully written tale that encapsulates both a single day and an entire life in particular time and place in America. It’s told from three perspectives: Jojo, a thirteen year old half black boy struggling to understand what it means to be a man; Leonie, his mother who should clearly never have become one; and Richie, the ghost of friend and fellow inmate of Jojo’s grandfather.

What did I just read? I am literally floored. This book is so good it hurts. The plot is summarized easily enough. Thomas Senlin is a tourist who has come to visit the Tower of Babel with his new young wife on their honeymoon. Moments after arriving they are separated by a thronging crowd. This is a world poised at the beginning of the industrial revolution so no phones or anything. To track down his wife he must enter the tower and proceed with ...more
