A Review of Tiny Sunbirds



Check out this great review of Christie Watson’s Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away by activist and blogger Ekine Sokari:

If literature represents a nation’s consciousness, that is, an awakening, then the Niger Delta has finally begun to seep into the minds of Nigerians: Ayo Akinfe’s “Fueling the Delta Fires”, Helon Habila’s “Oil on Water”, the yet unpublished graphic novel, “Light Sweet Crude”, a collaboration between Kenneth Coker and Chris Feliciano Arnold; and Christie Watson’s, “Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away”.

Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away is many stories which dance around one central story. Rather like an English maypole where dancers perform circle dances whilst they move in a circle. A little complicated with occasional dizzying junctures which destabilize the center. At the center is the narrator, 12-year old Blessing. Around her is her family: parents, sibling and grandparents; and outside them, the people who live, work and struggle in the Niger Delta.

  • I just wrote a book, a non-fiction novel titled: ‘The Diary of Corper Nostradamus: The Future of A Country’ published in Germany. You can check it on google to confirm. The sales is in Nigeria, besides, d price at which they sell each online is very expensive- 29.9 euro per copy, this doesn’t make many Nigerians have access to it. Our agreement is that I can publish it after a year in Nigeria. I want it to be published by Cassava republic next year both d published one and second part of the manuscript which is yet to be published- all in one book. What is your take on that?

  • A.H Mohammed is such a prodigy, the brain behind his work is just too enigmatic. The allocation of traits to each character makes the work so enthralling and I’m doing nothing but raising my thumbs for him. I am also an aspiring teenage writer trying to compete in the big market of great authors but the daunts I meet is the inability to raise funds for my publications. I have written books that only end up in my shelves. I’m actually writing one now "THE PRECURSORS OF ARMAGEDDON " a book that depicts the Nigerian society and I have so much belief that the book will earn much accolade in the great society of authors. I don’t know if Cassava Republic can sign a contract with me so that I can also have my books published and not make them a terminated dream. I’m not writing for the money sake, I’m writing because I want to see my book accruing much honour for Nigeria
