Bridge of Birds

Book: Bridge of Birds: A Novel of Ancient China that Never Was

Author: Barry Hughart

Reviewer: Hilary Davis, Interim Head of Collection Management and Director of Research Data Services

Set in an off-kilter version of ancient China, the two protagonists, Master Li Kao and Number Ten Ox, thread one wild adventure into another as they seek a cure for a village of children who succumb to serious illness.  A truly imaginative, creative, and witty read. The best thing is that there are two more books about Master Li and Number Ten Ox.
