Creatures of Passage: Moving through Space, Time, and the Afterlife.

"We just going round and round, we creatures of passage. And we gonna keep going round til we understand the Loop." -Grandmother

🌌🌌🌌

With #creaturesofpassage comes a story that explores what can be born and borne of grief, the power it has to both cripple and galvanize us, how the acceptance can lead to a path that is healing and transformative.

🌌🌌🌌

Yejidé's writing is heavy, heady, nuanced with feeling and meaning. She seamlessly interweaves the after with the now, connecting life and death via the spirit world, which she writes with such richness that the reader is immersed.

🌌🌌🌌

I love books that mesh the spirituality of Black existence into their prose, the meaning and bonds of family and community, the pain that comes with bottled up emotions and situations not spoken about, and the healing and triumph that begins when we open ourselves to the magic and currents of being.


🌌🌌🌌

The dualities of our presence, the ties that physically, emotionally, and spiritually run through communities and homes, the loss of innocence; the hardening of hearts in order to avoid shattering realities course through this story, but with a gentleness that cradles the reader.

🌌🌌🌌

Yejidé has written characters that burrow into your mind and soul because they all carry hurt and loss within, they all have cares. She has entwined reality with the mystical, making it easy to believe that each is never far from the other and all we have to do is believe.
