About This Book
Published to international critical and popular acclaim, this intensely romantic
yet stunningly realistic novel spans three generations and the unimaginable gulf
between the First World War and the present. As the young Englishman Stephen
Wraysford passes through a tempestuous love affair with Isabelle Azaire in
France and enters the dark, surreal world beneath the trenches of No Man's Land,
Sebastian Faulks creates a world of fiction that is as tragic as A Farewell to
Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. Crafted from the ruins of war and
the indestructibility of love, Birdsong is a novel that will be read and
marveled at for years to come.
Birdsong was voted one of the best books of the century in a poll conducted by Waterstone's booksellers and Channel Four TV in the United Kingdom. Here's a selection of the praise that has been pouring in:
"The accounts of combat are among the finest I have ever read ... so powerful as to be almost unbearable ... a tribute to the author's remarkable skill and tact and dazzling virtuosity."
-- Los Angeles Times
"Magnificent -- gorgeously written, deeply moving, rich in detail."
-- The Times (London)
"Superb storytelling and craftsmanship ... a tribute to the durability of the human soul."
"Vividly imagined ... this strenuous and poignant effort to shore up memory deserves our gratitude."
"Superb ... a genuinely cathartic description of the war's last days."
-- New York Times Book Review
