9780140053548: Birdy

The critically acclaimed Birdy is an inventive, hypnotic novel about friendship and family, love and war, madness and beauty, and, above all, "birdness". Wharton crafts an unforgettable tale--one that suggests a notion of sanity in a world that is manifestly insane.

Book Description:

'A writer's triumph and a reader's delight' Toni Morrison (2001-07-30)

From the Back Cover:

Within the padded walls of a military hospital sits Birdy, utterly silent.

But who is to say that he's really mad?

His sub-standard army psychiatrist still hasn't caught on that his patient seems to think that he's a bird, and recruits Birdy's childhood friend to try to get through to him. Out of a young man's need for escape and his consuming obsession with birds and flight, William Wharton has spun a dazzling story shot through with humour, wisdom, tenderness, tragedy and longing.
