Overview
President's Review:
"Birdsong is a novel of extraordinary depth. Subtitled "A novel of love and war" it spans the generations between World War I and the present. The New York Times called it "superb, unrelenting and dispassionate...genuinely cathartic". The reader can not fail to be awed and moved by Sebastian Faulk's intense depiction of the horror of war and the redemptive power of love. Don't be put off by the harrowing nature of the book's setting as it provides the backdrop for as passionate and evocative a piece of fiction as any I have read in recent years. This is the kind of writing that will be admired for generations. I recommended Birdsong to you without reservation."


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.
