'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 68 libraries worldwide

To 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. This is a rich mix of writing re-imagining the constantly evolving dynamics of trans-national migration in the 21st century, exploring the complex fabric of the world that contemporary migrants negotiate
