    I really loved this book and it's take on motherhood. Carmen Gimenez Smith provides a touching account of her journey having her son and what it meants to be a daughter, wife, mother, and woman. She articulates the struggles of juggling all roles. She is a strong woman, and reading this book was a real glimpse into what it means to be a mother.

    Carmen Gimenez Smith's Bring Down Little Birds was a fabulous read. I loved the style of the staccato'ed lines that show the frenetic pace of being a mother, an expectant mother and a daughter who must at points mother her mother while craving the security felt by a young child on a mother's lap. So many lines rang true to my own experience. Thank you, Carmen for putting it all so beautifully wrapped in your book!

    The twin trajectories of narrative here intertwine and expose one another in elegant ways: the release and newness, the imaginative openings that present because of the declining health of the speaker's mother; and the ways in which a part of this speaker dies as she prepares to become the mother of a daughter. Having read Gimenez Smith's poetry, I expected the lyricism, the whimsy, and the darkly gorgeous imagistic prose, but I was surprised by the book's sharp humor throughout. I read it in one sitting and am buying it for all the mothers I know. This is a book that doesn't shirk its duties (the hard truths are there, laid bald and often painful to read) but that also provides multiple pleasures (the stunning language; the forays into fantasy--often strange, always beautiful; and the wise ways in which the book makes comment on all of our lives, as mothers or as those who have been mothered). I cannot recommend this book enough.
