Editorial Reviews

ForeWord Reviews
The Lord God Bird is a quiet novel with a solitary spirit. Like its protagonist, it delves into the muddiness of the human condition—the way we live and lose our lives—but does so with gentle strokes of methodical, tender revelation. The sparse style and structure of the novel also serve as an archetype for the messages the novel aims to espouse: To live simply; to thrive on necessities instead of excess; and to rejoice in nature, relationships, life, and death—these lessons are embodied in the lives of the characters. This minimalist approach creates a seamless text where form reflects content quite beautifully. The Lord God Bird is a book with diverse appeal. In an era punctuated with all levels of neglect, it provides a voice of gentle reason.
