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to seep into the minds of Nigerians: Ayo Akinfe’s “Fueling the Delta Fires”, Helon Habila’s “Oil on Water”, the yet unpublished graphic novel, “Light Sweet Crude”, a collaboration between Kenneth Coker and Chris Feliciano Arnold; and Christie Watson’s, “Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away”.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.

  • My manuscript titled ’ The Consequence…!’ is now awaiting publishing. and i have chosen ur organisation to the publishing work. My fear is for my manuscript not to fall into the hands of hackers. You asked for my email address which is normal but when you demanded for my pass word this drew suspicion on my part. I am hesitant to forward it because i am not too sure of dealing with the right people especially as i am not too sure if you have a branch in Lagos where i could walk in to clarify matters..Thanks.
