Helen Oyeyemi - Boy, Snow, Bird

Publisher: Picador
Author: Helen Oyeyemi
Published: 27th February 2014
ISBN: 9781447237136
RRP: £12.99

BOY Novak turns twenty and decides to try for a brand-new life. Flax Hill, Massachusetts, isn't exactly a welcoming town, but it does have the virtue of being the last stop on the bus route she took from New York. Flax Hill is also the hometown of Arturo Whitman - craftsman, widower, and father of Snow.

SNOW is mild-mannered, radiant and deeply cherished - exactly the sort of little girl Boy never was, and Boy is utterly beguiled by her. If Snow displays a certain inscrutability at times, that's simply a characteristic she shares with her father, harmless until Boy gives birth to Snow's sister Bird.

When BIRD is born Boy is forced to re-evaluate the image Arturo's family have presenter to her, and Boy, Snow and Bird are broken apart.


Helen Oyeyemi is the prize-winning author of novels including White is for Witching, which won a 2010 Somerset Maugham Award, and Mr Fox. In 2013 Helen was included in Granta's Best of Young British Novelists, alongside Ned Beauman and Zadie Smith. Boy, Snow, Bird is Helen's fifth novel.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
