內容簡介

時代雜誌、出版家周刊、紐約時報2017年十大好書之一
入圍2017年柯克斯書評年度最佳好書決選

被祖父母照顧長大的喬喬今年才十三歲,他的人生中有許多男子佔有相當重要的地位,撫養他長大的黑人祖父波普是他的模範,白人父親犯了罪正準備要出獄,白人祖父根本不承認他的存在,還有黑人舅舅在年輕時就被懷恨的白人射殺身亡。

而生命中的女人除了他深愛的祖母外,母親蘭妮總是出現又消失、消失又出現,喬喬了解要是由母親來照顧他和妹妹,兩人的麻煩可大了,因為蘭妮是個自私又不負責任的女人,嗑藥因此總是腦袋不清楚。

蘭妮很清楚自己的過錯,但悲傷、毒癮、社會不公並沒有給她多少機會去改變自己的生活,她所遭受的壓力不是十三歲的喬喬可以理解的。

但就在父親即將出獄之際,蘭妮又出現了,把喬喬和妹妹趕上車,途中喬喬發現有個青少年里奇的鬼魂也跟著他們,似乎也只有喬喬看得見他,而里奇似乎和其他男人一樣,也有一些事要告訴喬喬。

本書講家人羈絆的力量和極限,甫出版即受到肯定,獨特又充滿詩意的文字,編織出一個精彩的家庭故事,時隔六年再次為瓦德奪下美國書卷獎的獎座!

An intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, Sing, Unburied, Sing examines the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power - and limitations - of family bonds.

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. It is a majestic new work from an extraordinary and singular author. LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2018
