Constance Hilliard and Daily Kos Review Saddam's Parrot

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/9/23/1700224/-How-Saddam-s-Parrot-Led-Me-to-Safety-From-Trump-Jr-s-Business-Ethics-a-Cosmic-Cataclysm

excerpts:


...Jim Currie came through this time as he had those many years before with flying colors (as for that last trip, I ended up in a lively disco, dancing the nights away in neighboring Dakar — the soul’s ways are indeed mysterious).

....Saddam’s Parrot, is beautifully written, funny and even poignant in places.

Praise for Saddam's Parrot by Berkeley Daily Planet

"Saddam's Parrot" by Jim Curry (Aignos Publishing, 2017


excerpts

...Currie gives us a marvelous character in Marianne, a wiry and witty work-a-day waitress who spends her off-hours advocating for elephants at the SF City Zoo while trying to raise funds to establish a wildlife sanctuary far outside the city. The search for sanctuary funding eventually leads to a confrontation with powerful political figures from the Bush era—and a not-surprising criminal enterprise, complete with snipers. There are two end-of-the-book crescendos in the story. One involves a pigeon race; the other involves a sniper shootout in downtown San Francisco.

...This is one of those stories that you can easily imagine reappearing as a movie. Saddam's Parrot is a well-crafted bit of entertainment that rewards the reader with loads of elephant lore and many vivid and memorable moments.
