One thought on “The Bird is Gone: A Manifesto

  1. Edward Rathke

    I ve read this little novel four times, and each time I learn and what truly happens within the pages At first read, I was, to be honest, pretty lost, but I enjoyed it so much that it didn t seem to matter Experimental or innovative is what I d call it, and it ll lose some readers, but Jones keeps the prose clever and strong, punctuated by real humor that begins almost immediately, which is no easy task With each read, the story s become clearer, the fun and the tricks fun It s a book that ca [...]

  5. Jonathan Cromwell

    The narrative style can make it quite confusing but it still manages to be very engaging Definitely worth a read.

  6. David

    Be ready to carry your mind out of body into the place many people have gone before without knowing if they will ever come back Then read this book slowly and carefully You will never forget it
