Synopsis:

Published to international critical and popular acclaim, this intensely romantic yet stunningly realistic novel spans three generations and the unimaginable gulf between the First World War and the present. As the young Englishman Stephen Wraysford passes through a tempestuous love affair with Isabelle Azaire in France and enters the dark, surreal world beneath the trenches of No Man's Land, Sebastian Faulks creates a world of fiction that is as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. Crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love, Birdsong is a novel that will be read and marveled at for years to come.


Review:

"...a riveting story of love--and incalculable suffering--during WW I. What could become mere period romance is transformed, in this writer's hands, into dramatized history with a power almost Tolstoyan...A wonderful book, ringing with truth."

Kirkus, 12/01/1995

Review:

"It is an ambitious book, less in literary terms than in thematic ones....It is not a saga in the conventional sense...but it is old-fashioned in its construction, its prose, and its purposes....Sebastian Faulks has read the war's literature with care and describes that warfare with convincing detail....a powerful book."

Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World, 02/18/1996

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. Set before and during the Great War, Birdsong captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale. It is the story of Stephen Wraysford, a young Englishman who journeys to France on business in 1910 and becomes so entangled in a passionate clandestine love affair that he never returns home. Rootless and heartbroken when war breaks out in 1914, he joins the army and is given command of a brigade of miners, whose macabre assignment is to tunnel beneath German lines and set off bombs under the enemy trenches - thereby creating a pitch-dark subterranean battlefield even more ghastly than the air and trench warfare above them. As have many lost young men, Stephen finds a place and an intense camaraderie in this tortuous world, and through his eyes Faulks reveals not only the unspeakable carnage but the unexpected love and loyalty that took place in the fields of France a mere two generations ago.
