Tail of the blue bird by Nii Ayikwei Parkes( Book )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 347 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 65 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. --

Spalding suite by Inua Ellams( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"Seen from a British perspective, The Spalding Suite gets to the heart and soul of the gravity-defying game and delves into the hopes and dreams of those who play it. From the fleeting high of the score and the robust camaraderie of the team, to the poignant lows of a body too worn to play the game."--Back cover
