Do You See Your Reflection?

boysnowbirdUnconventional in every way, “Boy, Snow, Bird” is like fairy tale and historical fiction in one. Oyeyemi is fearless in her depiction of race in America in a time when the color of one’s skin meant everything. It’s beauty lies in it’s characters. All are flawed and human, yet there is something supernatural about them, as if they lie in a parallel world in which everyone is born with an insight into society, and has an understanding of the world deeper than we do today. Enticing and fresh, “Boy, Snow, Bird” is a must read.
