Tail of the blue bird by Nii Ayikwei Parkes( Book )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Tail of the Blue Bird' is a story of the mythical heart of Africa, of the clash and clasp between old and new worlds. Lyrically beautiful, at once uncanny and heart-warmingly human, this is a story that tells us that at the heart of modern man there remains the capacity to know the unknowable
South of south : an anthology devoted to the humanity and narrative of migration ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most migrants arrive at their destinations by a combination of serendipity and choicelessness. This has been Nii Parkes' own experience. The question, how did you arrive here?, is always answered with a convoluted mix of myth, love, family ties, budget, language, persecution, opportunity and interruption. In the answers to that question lie the connecting lines of his scatter points, Abidjan, Grimsby, Cape Coast, London, Accra, Manchester, Los Angeles, and Dijon. To further answer that question he has brought together a distinguished selection of contemporary writers who share parallel experiences and invited them to contribute short fiction to this anthology. --
