Review:

"Smart, lively and informative. . . . Boehrer's abiding love for these birds is sure to win some converts. . . This is an enjoyable, eloquent paean to all things psittacine."—Washington Times



"Parrot Culture celebrates the beauty, intelligence, and personally of these birds."—BirdTimes



"Engrossing. . . . Bruce Thomas Boehrer concentrates his well-stocked mind on what over the centuries we humans have done to, and done with, parrots."—Times Literary Supplement



"As both a fiction writer and a lover of parrots, I was delighted and enlightened by Parrot Culture. This is an enchanting book."—Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain



"Boehrer has a knowledge base that spans science, art, and literature, and the writing is delightful. The book is fascinating."—Joanna Burger, author of The Parrot Who Owns Me



"In tracing the relationship between human and parrot, Boehrer, an English professor and parrot fancier, examines the influence of psittacines on all levels of society. Parrots have always been popular as pets, and interwoven with the discussion of parrots as symbols is Boehrer's analysis of our obsession with owning parrots, which has directly led to their decline. This amalgam of art, natural history, and literature will find a ready audience among the legions of bird aficionados."—Booklist



"The book is written by that most rare and wonderful of specimens—an academic whose obsession with parrots is disciplined by his knowledge and love of literature."—Literary Review



"An endlessly surprising account."—ForeWord
