Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

It's spring in New England, and birds are dying en masse. Teenager Caitlin and her step-father--a widower, insurance-claims processor, and the first-person narrator of Bradford Morrow's Fall of the Birds--are flummoxed. They are avid birdwatchers, and the disturbing trend of mass bird-deaths quickly becomes a prism through which they examine their evolving relationship in the wake of her mother's death. ("Caitlin and I were like stray moons who'd lost their host planet and were flying blind, wobbling as we went.") As the birds continue to die inexplicably, Morrow's tale portrays sorrowful depths, filial love, and human resilience with a language that maintains an impressively delicate balance: impassioned yet elegant, gravid yet light, studied but never unapproachable. Ultimately, and to its credit, the story adheres to a human/animal metaphor as bluntly constructed as Sherwood Anderson's "The Egg," for as Morrow's narrator says: "Canaries were taken into coal mines for good reason. The fate of birds is our fate." --Jason Kirk
