Birds Without Wings PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Birds Without Wings free pdf In his first novel since Corelli s Mandolin," " Louis de Bernieres creates a world, populates it with characters as real as our best friends, and launches it into the maelstrom of twentieth-century history. The setting is a small village in southwestern Anatolia in the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. Everyone there speaks Turkish, though they write it in Greek letters. It s a place that has room for a professional blasphemer- where a brokenhearted aga finds solace in the arms of a Circassian courtesan who isn t Circassian at all- where a beautiful Christian girl named Philothei is engaged to a Muslim boy named Ibrahim. But all of this will change when Turkey enters the modern world. Epic in sweep, intoxicating in its sensual detail, Birds Without Wings is an enchantment."
