Jojo is thirteen years old and trying to understand what it means to be a man. His mother; Leonie; is in constant conflict with herself and those around her. She is black and her children's father is white. Embattled in ways that reflect the brutal reality of her circumstances; she wants to be a better mother; but can't put her children above her own needs; especially her drug use. When the children's father is released from prison; Leonie packs her kids and a friend into her car and drives north to the heart of Mississippi and Parchman Farm; the State Penitentiary. At Parchman; there is another boy; the ghost of a dead inmate who carries all of the ugly history of the South with him in his wandering. He too has something to teach Jojo about fathers and sons; about legacies; about violence; about love. Rich with Ward's distinctive; lyrical language; Sing; Unburied; Sing brings the archetypal road novel into rural twenty-first century America.
