    Jesmyn Ward s Sing, Unburied, Sing is true Southern Gothicism at its finest It is a novel that I ve been waiting a very long time to read, and I mean that both literally and figuratively There is so much within these pages so much angst, so much wonder and so much sorrow that I am still grappling with it even now And that s a wonderful thing, the best feeling and the most lasting impression a writer can ever bestow on their reader.I read, before reading this novel, that Jesmyn Ward had recent Jesmyn Ward s Sing, Unburied, Sing is true Southern Gothicism...
