The Song the Birds Forgot

The Song the Birds Forgot

ByRichard Borovsky

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
THE SONG THE BIRDS FORGOT is a tale of discovery, betrayal and illumination, featuring Jason Aeneas Finch, a young sculptor with a head-full of Greek mythology, lovingly instilled in him by his eccentric classics professor of a father. On the eve of his twenty-first birthday, Jason makes a vow so unprecedented that he believes it distinguishes him from all living people. As a result of his unique resolution, Jason finds both enrichment and suffering. His adventures range from pizza delivery to cross country travel to journies to the metaphysical extremes of the Cosmos. He meets Cyrene, an aging, retired nymph, working as a waitress; Lord Poseidon himself; and a mysterious, eminently distinguished man of uncertain origins—all the while renewing his unprecedented, life-altering vows daily. But in the end, his privileged view of life notwithstanding, Jason discovers that all he’s known is only a thin sliver of the “unforeseeable miracle of creation.”
