We Are All BirdseBook - 2012
After a devastating end to a long-term relationship, Sheldon Wirth, now nearly thirty, wants nothing more than to forget the failures of his past. But just as he is readying himself to move on with his life, he is hit with shocking news: His life-long friend Dent Brown has been diagnosed with a rare but lethal bone marrow disease. Instead of seeking treatment, however, Dent disappears overseas, to the puzzlement of his friends from home. His departure forces Shel-his sanity deteriorating apace with his professional life-to reunite with his ex, rethink old prejudices, and reconnect with Dent on what is possibly the last trip they will ever take together. WE ARE ALL BIRDS is a hilarious and often moving book about manhood, resilience and redemption. In a world that rewards selfishness over sacrifice and where perseverance is a lost virtue, Shel convinces himself that Dent holds the key to contentment-and puts his life on hold in search of something, anything, that might one day lead to happiness.
