professors a philosopher of knowledge and an ornithologist that studies bird communication who, despite their expertise, have never quite learned how to talk to each other.First, the writing is beautiful I could tell Ms Stern put a lot of work into the prose The character development was very good and she does a great job putting in enough plot to keep me engaged enough to finish this novel in less than 24 hours At times humorous and at others just plain sad, I do recommend this novel, especially to anyone that enjoys reading about academia and marriage.My one tiny critique is that I felt this novel could have used maybe another 50 pages to fully illustrate the relationship at the heart of the novel All said, though, this was a great debut and I look forward to whatever Ms Stern
