The celebrated collection of twelve stories from one of the finest authors at work today From the opening story, “Willing”—about a second-rate movie actress in her thirties who has moved back to Chicago, where she makes a seedy motel room her home and becomes involved with a mechanic who has not the least idea of who she is as a human being—Birds of America unfolds a startlingly brilliant series of portraits of the unhinged, the lost, the unsettled of our America. In what may be her most stunning book yet, Lorrie Moore explores the personal and the universal, the idiosyncratic and the mundane, with all the wit, brio, and verve that have made her one of the best storytellers of our time.

Editorial Reviews

“A marvelous collection…[Moore’s] stories are tough, lean, funny, and metaphysical…Birds of America has about it a wild beauty that simply makes one feel more connected to life.” Boston Globe
“Lorrie Moore soars with Birds of America…A marvelous, fiercely funny book.” Newsweek
“At once sad, funny, lyrical, and prickly, Birds of America attests to the deepening emotional chiaroscuro of [Moore’s] wise and beguiling work.” New York Times
