Rara Avis by Jacqueline Bograd Weld

Set in the South American tropics of 50 years ago Rara Avis is about the arrest of Soraida, the Romandia family parrot. While declaiming poetry, the astute Soraida has screaked anti-governmental propaganda and the family now faces arrest. Narrated by daughter Lita, Rara Avis works its surreal magic on multiple levels of association. Here is a remote, exotic world in which magic is as familiar as the weather and in which emotional truths of family, innocence and politics are tellingly illuminated.
