    One thought on “Lost Birds”

    1. WHEW! I would have given this a 5, except for the last 3 stories/chapters.It's a connected novel in the sense of being completely about the Lithuanian experience /neighborhood of South side Chicago just post war WWII until turn of the century era. But each chapter is rather a short story with other "eyes" narrating- someone "else" from the neighborhood. But there are many characters in common to all the stories.The English is clear, abrupt, short, blunt- very much like the Lithuanian translated [...]

    2. Lost Birds is among my favorite collections of short stories, and I’m reading it the second time. Each story is well crafted and beautifully written. Language is plain and words are simple, but they convey powerful emotion and profound meaning. Many stories are told in an innocent voice of a child, but with an adult’s sophisticated point of view. Knowing that the Birute Putrius was born in a displaced person’s camp, some stories feel as real as memoirs. The author’s tone of story-telling [...]

    3. Absolutely stunning. Each of the stories is a polished gem; within each are moments, scenes, and emotions which are like tiny pearls; the whole is perfection -- a beautiful work of art. Not only does she really GET what it's like to grow up or find oneself with one foot in America and one foot in the old country, but she transports you to that same strange and wonderful place.

    4. My first grade teacher who came from Lithuania gave me this book and I was so thankful to read a fictional book laced with the incredible historical story and struggles and joys of the Lithuanians who came to Chicago to escape the Soviets after WWII. The book spans 4o years and ends beautifully.

    5. More a collection of linked short stories than a novel. Will definitely resonate with those of Lithuanian heritage.

    6. A fine contribution to a flurry of recent books about Lithuanian-Americans who emigrated after WW II. In this case, many stories from the perspective of people in the Lithuanian community of Marquette Park in Chicago. The stories progress from 1950 through 1991 (the year of Lithuanian Independence from the Soviets). All aspects of daily life come up: jobs in Chicago for the emigres, parochial school, longing for family members left behind, grief over the disruption of war, the Lithuanian governm [...]
