Within the padded walls of a military hospital sits Birdy, utterly silent. But who is to say that he's really mad? His sub-standard army psychiatrist still hasn't caught on that his patient seems to think that he's a bird, and recruits Birdy's childhood friend to try to get through to him. Out of a young man's need for escape and his consuming obsession with birds and flight, William Wharton has spun a dazzling story shot through with humour, wisdom, tenderness, tragedy and longing.

William Wharton was born in America and is now a painter in Paris.
An inventive, hypnotic novel about frienship and family, love and war, madness and beauty, and, above all, "birdness." Wharton crafts an unforgettable tale--one that suggests another notion of sanity in a world that is manifestly insane.
