Birdsong - Sebastian Faulks: Sebastian Faulks

Isuspect there are many books that have moulded me, shaped my personality, even determined my mood from one day to the next, but, for its sheer impact and seismic change on my outlook on life, I must choose Birdsong. This is one of the most startlingly evocative books of this, or any, generation. Starting as a rather gentle romantic tale set in France in the early years of this century, the story takes a dramatic lurch into the horrors of the trenches of the first world war. Although it is a familiar story, Faulks produces a vivid and traumatising description of the sights and sounds of life and death in and under the trenches. The pure fury and intensity of the imagery created page after page is, by turns, compelling, profoundly shocking, and, ultimately, desperately uncomfortable to read.

The wagons that rolled in from Lille and Arras to the north drove directly into the tanneries and mills of the Saint Leu quarter without needing to use this rutted, leafy road. The town side of the boulevard backed on to substantial gardens, which were squared off and apportioned with civic precision to the houses they adjoined. On the damp grass were chestnut trees, lilacs, and willows, cultivated to give shade and quietness to their owners. The gardens had a wild, overgrown look and their deep lawns and bursting hedges could conceal small clearings, quiet pools, and areas unvisited even by the inhabitants, where patches of grass and wild flowers lay beneath the branches of overhanging trees.
