"As beautiful as the mirrored reflection on a still lake, this novel of love, loss, and loneliness will pull you in from the very start. A tour de force of eloquent prose that is equal parts tranquil and gentle, powerful and compelling. As stories within stories unfold, layers of perfectly imperfect lives are revealed. Fishing for Birds is a sensual exploration of the human need for storytelling as we try to make sense of being alive and then, how we continue onwards, when nothing is straightforward."

--Lisa de Nikolits, author of No Fury Like That and Rotten Peaches
