When was the last time you read a book that made you want to call a friend and insist they read it, not just because it was a fantastic read, but because you absolutely, immediately needed someone you could talk to about it? Boy, Snow, Bird is that book. Helen Oyeyemi’s new novel is a fascinating, brilliant, and surprisingly charming story of a mother and two daughters struggling to invent themselves while fumbling and failing to understand each other. Boy is the mother, a woman with nerves of cold steel, Snow is the beautiful, enigmatic step-daughter, and Bird is the precocious, dark-skinned child whose birth reveals the mixed-race heritage her family worked so hard to hide. Together Boy, Snow, and Bird tell a story that echoes Snow White, full of mirrors and masks, jealousy and suspicion, and all the ways we hide from ourselves. It’s a relentlessly original re-imagination, a matryoshka doll of a book with truths nesting inside lies, and characters who reveal themselves momentarily before Oyeyemi wraps them in another layer of mystery. Boy, Snow, Bird is not a book you’ll be able to keep to yourself. It’s a stunning puzzle that will leave you thinking, sharing, and talking – it is a book that refuses to let go of you.
