Product description


"Malouf is subtle, lyric and insistent. His stories enter the memory and stay there." (Irish Times)

"Simply brilliant and naturalistically told" (Guardian)

"The continuities of nature are set against the obscenities of war...to contruct a memorable book" (Sunday Telegraph)

"The novel of a poet without a single trace of overwriting" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

A cast of wildly different characters, united by a love of birds, come together on the coast of Australia in 1914. Their avian idyll is soon disturbed as war rips through Europe, irrevocably changing and challenging their lives.
