9780747524328: The Birds of the Air (Bloomsbury Classic)
From the Publisher:

Like Ellis’s popular The Inn at the Edge of the World, this novel is set in the Christmas season. Here, the social comedy of the Marsh family’s festivities is set against the backdrop of a mother’s grief over the death of her son. Originally published in 1978. With a new Afterword by James Mustich, Jr.

Review:

“A painfully brilliant comedy.” -- NEW YORK MAGAZINE

“Every page of this wry, edgy novel bristles with delights for the reader.” -- Sebastian Faulks

“I rather suspect it may be a masterpiece.” -- Auberon Waugh
