The Bird Artist: A Novel | Howard Norman

Fabian Vas is a young man with talent and a passion for sketching and painting birds in turn-of-the-century coastal Newfoundland.Bird Artist

His powers of observation are so finely tuned that he rarely needs to describe events.  He simply lives them and, in so doing, brings every scene alive.  A complex achievement skillfully executed by Howard Norman.

It is written in a stripped-down style that inspires colorful notions and emotions.  The characters are vivid, flawed and fun to know.
