Jesmyn Ward has a gift for presenting the horrors of our world in such a captivating, haunting manner, her reader cannot leave the final page the same person he or she was at its first.
Sing, Unburied, Sing uncovers the realities of drug use's effects on users, their families and their communities as well as the far-reaching effects of racism and injustice on society.
I love the way Jesmyn wove the three first-person narrators through the book. I found myself empathizing and sympathizing with all three. As with her other books, this is a hard, hard story to witness, but it is one we all need to read and understand and commit to change.
