When We Were Birds is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of When We Were Birds
First thing you have to remember,’ Granny Catherine hold her granddaughter, Yejide, close on her lap, ‘is that there was a time before time.’ She press the first layer of tobacco down into her ebony pipe. The flame from her silver lighter make a small blaze in the cavern of the bowl and the pipe settle between her lips. ‘Before we come to live in this house, before the settlement in the valley, before the quarries, when the forest was so thick that no man could cross it,
Morne Marie was the home only of animals. But not like animals we see now, oh no!’ Catherine open her eyes wide and the blue smoke curl out of her nostrils. ‘The ocelots was big like tigers, the deer run so fast that no man could catch them even if he dare enter the forest to hunt them, and the little green parrots that sing at dusk was as big as the blood-red ibis that live in the swamplands. The animals could talk to each other, just like I talking now, and they build a mighty city in the forest. But this city was nothing like Port Angeles. It had no buildings, no boundaries, no gates, and the animals live together without territory to guard and borders to mind.
