And the Birds Rained Down is our best-selling translation ever, and was a huge success internationally. It was shortlisted for a dozen different prizes, including the Prix des Cinq Continents de la Francophonie in France and Canada Reads. This is a much-anticipated follow-up.
This book furthers Birds’ theme of aging and dying on one’s own terms; this theme feels even more salient now as we consider how long-term-care homes work (and don’t) during the pandemic.
For people who love the Alice Munro classic Away From Her.
