Bring Down the Little Birds
How does a contemporary woman with an established career as a creative writing professor and editor in chief of a literary journal experience motherhood? The dichotomy between life as a mother and life as an artist and professional is a major theme in modern literature because often the two seem irreconcilable. In Bring Down the Little Birds, Carmen Giménez Smith offers a lyrical personal memoir that sheds light on her experiences with pregnancies and raising two children.
Carmen Giménez Smith is an assistant professor in the English department at New Mexico State University, the editor in chief of the literary journal Puerto del Sol, and the publisher at the nonprofit Noemi Press. She is also the author of Odalisque in Pieces.
