Birds of America

Lorrie Moore
NZD $28.99

Birds of America by the hugely talented Lorrie Moore is perhaps her most stunning collection of short stories yet, exploring the personal and the universal, the idiosyncratic and the mundane.

Lorrie Moore's dazzling collection of stories is remarkable for its range, emotional force and dark humour, and for the sheer beauty and power of its language. It unfolds a startlingly brilliant series of portraits of the young, the hip, the lost, the unsettled and the unhinged of modern-day America.

In what may be her most stunning book yet, Lorrie Moore explores the personal and the universal, the idiosyncratic and the mundane with all of the wit, brio and verve that have made her one of the best storytellers of our time.
