ilb 2023 Beyond Western Mythologies Jennifer Neal Ayanna Lloyd Banwo


Jennifer Neal’s debut novel Notes on Her Color combines Florida kitsch and magical realism in a coming-of-age story about a woman who learns to change the color of her skin. Ayanna Lloyd Banwo’s When We Were Birds, translated into German by Michaela Grabinger, tells a magical love story: Emmanuel, a young Rastafarian, works in Port Angeles, Trinidad at the cemetery, which is not only a resting place for the dead. The two young authors talk about storytelling beyond Western mythologies.
