Flight of Birds: A Novel in Twelve Stories

Joshua Lobb

The Flight of Birds is a collection of fictional and ficto-critical stories, presenting encounters with a range of birds. Embedded in the fictional encounters is a philosophical and theoretical investigation into the ways humans engage with
birds.

Lobb's substantial achievement has been to create a cohesive whole in which the parts flow and the patterns resonate. Interlocking and open-ended, the stories are rich with fragments from poems and other texts ... [The book] creates space for the consciousness of both humans and birds.
