Pigeon Feathers: And Other Stories

Pigeon Feathers: And Other

When this classic collection of stories first appeared—in 1962, on the author’s thirtieth birthday—Arthur Mizener wrote in The New York Times Book Review: “Updike is a romantic [and] like all American romantics, that is, he has an irresistible impulse to go in memory home again in order to find himself. . . . The precise recollection of his own family-love, parental and marital, is vital to him; it is the matter in which the saving truth is incarnate. . . . Pigeon Feathers is not just a book of very brilliant short stories; it is a demonstration of how the most gifted writer of his generation is coming to maturity; it shows us that Mr. Updike’s fine verbal talent is no longer pirouetting, however gracefully, out of a simple delight in motion, but is beginning to serve his deepest insight.”

An entertaining and profound look at the lives of birds, illuminating their surprising world—and deep connection with humanity. Birds are highly intelligent animals, yet their intelligence is dramatically different from our own and has been little understood.

Feathers and Faces: Adele Renault

Feathers and Faces: Adele

Adele Renault is an artist with a deft touch for that which most might find commonplace. From pigeons to people, she focuses her artistry on realistic depictions of ordinary city residents.On canvas, on our walls and in our homes, her feathered friends are wildlife and pets feral yet tame; wary companions that sing to us in silent flights of fancy yet perched in waiting, alive and uncontainable, readyfor an open window to make their escape. So present and personable, they dovetail perfectly with her human portraiture, proffering a sense that her paintings of people, rendered with the same attention and loving careas her birds, are perhaps too like all of us, curious birds themselves.To witness Adele turn the entire side of a building into a work of art is truly something to behold. Her ability to attack, to create with such exacting ferocity is in and of itself a piece of performance art
