    Birds Without Wings is the story of a small town in Anatolia in the dying days of the Ottoman Empire told in the richly varied voices of the men and women (Armenians, Christians, and Muslims) whose lives are intertwined and rooted there: Iskander, the potter and local fount of wisdom; Philotei, the Christian girl of legendary beauty, courted almost from infancy by Ibrahim the goatherd, a great love that culminates in tragedy and madness; and many more.

    Overall

    This is one of the top five books that I have ever read (or listened to); and, I read alot. John Lee does an absolutely masterful job with the narration of a very challenging and complicated book. This book has dramatic implications and lessons for all of us in these polarizing times. At times sad, graphic, mysterious, horrifying, imaginative and hilariously funny, this is a must read.
