All the Little Birds

G E Banfield

All the Little Birds is a book that teems with imagery, darkness, secrets, wonder and the loss of childhood innocence, set in the backdrop of racial tensions dividing London throughout 1970s and early 1980s England. Within her world of lyrical content, spirit ancestors, fantastical stories and mystery, we meet young Mary who tries to manage the familiar and unfamiliar taking place in her life and home. Told through a realism that includes passages of light, hope and an emotional torrent of circumstance, we learn what it is to be a child venturing through the world, lost, confused, lonely and in need of the warm arms of love that keeps us from falling too deep into our own heads of turmoil and trauma.
