Birds of Passage

“Hungary 1990 – with dissident lives redundant after the defeat of communism, market prices making beggars of the population and foreign feminism knocking rudely at the door – is the setting for this excellent first novel. Birds of Passage explores the tenuous relationship between a Canadian couple and their Hungarian neighbours….Leith has that cool precise way with the passions that makes one think of Alison Lurie.” – The Times Literary Supplement
