"This Sky where we live Is no place to lose your wings."--Hafiz
Birds in Fall by Brad Kessler
This novel tells the story of a tragedy and its aftermath. I am a sucker for pieces of writing that deal with what happens after the end of your world has come, and then gone, and you also have to go on if for no other reason than your heart keeps beating and your body keeps breathing.
The symbolism and metaphores might be a bit thick, but I think the author had a lot he wanted to say and he does it well.
Quintessential sentence: "May I ask, he hesitated, do they find their way back?"
Favorite word: crepuscular
