Set in remote mountains to the north, Broken Wing is an allegorical tale about a rusty blackbird who can’t fly south for the winter, and a man who lives a solitary life of nurturing attentiveness, simple kindness, and passionate intensity. Broken Wing is also a story of loneliness and survival. It is also the story of one individual black man told from outside the usual stereotypes about African-American males, which is a perspective seldom seen in America literature.
