Birds of America is the celebrated collection of twelve stories from Lorrie Moore, one of the finest authors at work today.

?Fluid, cracked, mordant, colloquial?. Stand[s] by itself as one of our funniest, most telling anatomies of human love and vulnerability.? ?The New York Times Book Review

?A marvelous collection?. Her 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.? ?The Boston Globe

?At once sad, funny, lyrical and prickly, Birds of America attests to the deepening emotional chiaroscuro of her wise and beguiling work.? ?The New York Times

?Stunning?. There?s really no one like Moore; in a perfect marriage of art form and mind, she has made the short story her own.? ?Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

?Birds of America stands as a major work of American short fiction?. Absolutely mastered.? ?Elle

?Wonderful?. These stories impart such terrifying truths.? ?Philadelphia Inquirer

?Lorrie Moore soars with Birds of America.... A marvelous, fiercely funny book.? ?Newsweek

?Fifty years from now, it may well turn out that the work of very few American writers has as much to say about what it means to be alive in our time as that of Lorrie Moore.? ?Harper?s Magazine
