    An English Guide to Birdwatching by Nicholas Royle

    Compelling, audacious and dazzling in its linguistic playfulness and formal invention, An English Guide to Birdwatching explores the fertile hinterland between fact and fiction. In its focus on birds, climate change, the banking crisis, social justice and human migration, it is intensely relevant to wider political concerns; in its mischievous wit and wordplay, and post-modern (or ‘post-fiction’) sensibility, it pushes the boundaries of what a novel might be. ‘An English Guide to Birdwatching is a daring novel, both wickedly playful and deeply touching.’ Alison Moore
