Annotation

Set against the backdrop of the collapsing Ottoman Empire, Birds Without Wings traces the fortunes of one small community in south-west Anatolia - a town in which Christian and Muslim lives and traditions have co-existed peacefully for centuries.

Publisher Description

Set against the backdrop of the collapsing Ottoman Empire, the Gallipoli campaign and the subsequent bitter struggle between Greeks and Turks, Birds Without Wings traces the fortunes of one small community in south-west Anatolia - a town in which Christian and Muslim lives and traditions have co-existed peacefully for centuries. When war is declared and the outside world intrudes, the twin scourges of religion and nationalism lead to forced marches and massacres, and the peaceful fabric of life is destroyed. Philothei, a Christian girl of legendary beauty, and Ibrahim the Goatherd who has courted her since infancy are but two of the many casualties. With the end of a community that once transcended religious differences, their great love seems destined to end in tragedy and madness...

Review

Pleasurable... Like Steinbeck, de Bernieres deserves praise for his imaginative sympathy Independent on Sunday His most serious and ambitious achievement to date Times Literary Supplement A magnificent, poetic, colossal novel... Superbly written... It is, in every sense, a sublime book Irish Times A mesmerising patchwork of horror, humour and humanity Independent A more ambitious novel than Captain Corelli, and a better one Financial Times
