American Birds: A Literary Companion
DUE IN MARCH: At a time when even the most common backyard birds are beings not to be taken for granted, this anthology reminds American readers all that we still have to cherish and lose. They can trace the same thrill from 19th century writers like Henry David Thoreau who warms to the sound of the wood thrush right through to the writing of present day modern American writers whose ears, eyes, and hearts are still moved to hope, "the thing with feathers that perches in the soul." We owe a debt of gratitude to editors Williams and Rubenfeld for researching this beautiful connection through time. Recommended by Kelly
Featuring some of America's greatest writers and poets, this landmark anthology is a one-of-a-kind field guide to the American literary imagination.
