An Aviary of Small Birds is both elegy to a stillborn son and testament to the redemptive qualities of poetry as a transformative art. The book opens at the birth, which paradoxically becomes the moment of death when, after a long labor and an emergency caesarean, the baby’s heart gives out.

Nick Makoha's debut poetry pamphlet bristles with the energy and imagery of an epic imagination. The braggadocio of a child whose father is absent, the bravado of a child fleeing the only country and diet he knows and the reluctant tenderness of a young man in love all feature in the deck of cards he deals from. A first pamphlet of bewildering promise.
