Birds of Maine, Michael DeForge's latest offering, is in store today! This surrealist graphic novel takes as its subject a colony of birds living on the moon. Though, these aren't just any birds. They're socialist birds void of such concepts as property, wealth, or class. They eat their universal worm every night and take shelter together. Their family units are flexible and most everyone becomes a librarian when they grow up.
Birds of Maine is a utopia where the internet lives inside fungal networks, and birds are free. DeForge, often described as a luddite due to his disdain for technology, uses Birds of Maine to imagine a world where technology is a benevolent force. Birds is arguably his happiest book ever, and maybe that's because it takes place far away from earth.
Publishers Weekly calls Birds of Maine "A knotty, whimsical triumph of often hilarious satire." It's an absolutely hilarious, witty, and inspiring adventure. Pick up a copy today!
