Birdsong, Hardback Book

Birdsong Hardback

Hardback

Description

Set before and during the great war, Birdsong captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale.

It is the story of Stephen, a young Englishman, who arrives in Amiens in 1910.

Over the course of the novel he suffers a series of traumatic experiences, from the clandestine love affair that tears apart the family with whom he lives, to the unprecedented experiences of the war itself. "An overpowering and beautiful novel... Ambitious, outrageous, poignant, sleep-disturbing, Birdsong is not a perfect novel, just a great one" (Simon Schama)
