WWI Centenary Edition b> b>With a new introduction from the author A novel of overwhelming emotional power, Birdsong is a story of love, death, sex and survival. Stephen Wraysford, a young Englishman, arrives in Amiens in northern France in 1910 to stay with the Azaire family, and falls in love with unhappily married Isabelle.

Reviews

"Magnificent - deeply moving" * Sunday Times * "With Birdsong Faulks has produced a mesmerizing story of love and war... This book is so powerful that as I finished it I turned to the front to start again" * Sunday Express * "Amazing... I have read it and re-read it and can think of no other novel for many, many years that has so moved me or stimulated in me so much reflection on the human spirit" * Daily Mail * "An overpowering and beautiful novel... Ambitious, outrageous, poignant, sleep-disturbing, Birdsong is not a perfect novel, just a great one" -- Simon Schama * New Yorker * "Engrossing, moving, and unforgettable" * The Times * "This is a great love story" -- Prue Leith * Daily Express * "One of the finest novels of the last forty years" * Mail on Sunday * "This is literature at its very best: a book with the power to reveal the unimagined, so that one's life is set in a changed context. I urge you to read it" * Time Out * "So powerful is this recreated past that you long to call Birdsong perfect" * The Times * "A powerful novel that is difficult to put down" * Independent on Sunday *
