Abornewords Books: Nicole Kim The Bloggers Review Of Helen Oyeyemi And Her Boy, Snow, Bird Book What?

July 20, 2018
Boy, Snow, BirdBoy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A book that cleverly mentions moments in history like Emmett Tills Assassination, Mohommad Ali's ideas about not having a beef with Vietnamese while exploring concepts about broken family ties, friendships, education, and parenting. Dealing with the loss of a parent takes center stage, as sisters are separated and then reunited at a Thanksgiving feast to only remind everyone in the family and also friends of what I will call the ugly snake that reared its head to call attention to Blacks who are able and embrace passing as white. Abuse, long-distance relationships, letter writing and the competition between Sisters will get you involved and excited as they exchange letters in an unusual way. This adds fluff to the story as relationships are formed and torn down, only to be built up again. The story started in New York, making the adventures that occur before the town of Flax Hill seem likely. The story starts with a young woman leaving her Fathers home like a runaway, even though she is really of adult age. It is easy to go along with her and to also embrace her life mission of getting away from her Father since his actions and personality are abhorrent. The uneasiness and instability of Boys work history are very relatable. Warmth develops through the story and it can grow on you as the narration shifts from adult experiences of love and marriage to the voice of children who are attending school, learning and even fighting among themselves as they form relationships among characters who participate in all kinds of mischief. Though the ending is cleverly written, it disappoints because of the immoral act of one character. It made me sorry that I had played Singer Sade's Love Is Stronger than Pride CD, over and over. However, it left me appreciating the scene featuring Jay Ellis in a cheating episode with a stripper which happened in the last episode of Season one of the HBO Series created by Issa Rae called Insecure. Yes.....

Shadow & Act Contributor, Tonja Renee Stidhum seems to be yearning for more representation for little Black Girls.
