Book: The Tent
Author: Margaret Atwood
"We ate the birds. We ate them. We wanted their songs to flow up through our throats and burst out of our mouths, and so we ate them. We wanted their feathers to bud from our flesh. We wanted their wings, we wanted to fly as they did, soar freely among the treetops and the clouds, and so we ate them."My teaser from last week was also from The Tent, and here's another. I love this passage - it's the beginning of a short story called, you guessed it, Eating the Birds. It's so strange, but I find it wonderful.
