‘Banning the Bullshit’ Sunday: ‘Birdy’ by Karen Osborne

Phew! That’s one hell of a week out of the way! (and what a crap-filled week it was! I mean, seriously? The amount of virtual dung flying around in the shape of so-called informed blog-posts this week was enough to make farmers jealous!)

And so to today, my now-favourite day of the week! (and evenmoreso today as it is Bank Holiday tomorrow here in England)

Anyho’. Today, you guys are in for a treat.

At MWiDP, we are always on the look out for something different (and, crap-free, I might add). We have some awesome titles on our books now and we are very proud to be associated with them. I mean, let’s face it, we’re not just gonna publish any old tat now are we? ūüėČ

Every so often, as publishers, writers and more importantly, readers, we come across something that stops us¬†in our tracks. It might be a poem, a line of dialogue, hell, it might even be a whole book; you know the one that you instantly miss when you’ve finished it?¬† We’ve all been there right?

Well, today’s offering is one of those such gems.

‘Birdy‘ is a strange animal. It is neither one thing nor the other. I couldn’t even tell you exactly what it is.

And that’s the beauty of it.

It is a story.¬†A reflection of mankind; a poem; a collection of beautifully haunting¬†drawings; your worst nightmare and in the authors’ own words:

a strange little story of one dog’s unconditional love for a young woman and how female energy fights back against the unnatural corruption of male energy gone mad!

Whatever it is and whatever you think it is, one thing’s for sure, you need to read it, to live it. It will stay with you always.

Beautifully supported by the original charcoal drawings and text, ‘Birdy’ will leave you breathless and your coffee cold.

It might be short and it certainly ain’t sweet, but you need ‘Birdy’ in your life. Trust me.

    What a fascinating book! And beautiful. MWiDP continues to innovate and amaze.

  2. This work reminds me of another, only I can’t find it because all I can remember is “When [dog’s name] sleeps”. I ought to direct my mother to some of these books. She is a survivor who now helps others survive and heal.
