BirdsongBook - 2005 | Future classics limited edition
'Birdsong' is a novel about the tenderness and the limits of human flesh, it is about men and women living at the edge. Set mostly in France spanning the years before and during the First World War, it captures the drama and destruction of that era as it tells the story of Stephen, a young Englishman who is impelled through a series of extreme experiences, from a traumatic clandestine love affair which rips apart the bourgeois French family he lives with, through the grim insanity of the Great War. In the vast scenes of suffering and the tender depiction of human love, 'Birdsong' is at times almost unbearably moving to read.
