Poetry is for the Birds is a collection of some of the most heartfelt, sincere and down-to-earth poems you will ever have the pleasure of reading. After winning the much revered, and completely fabricated, Ríkadla Meho Srdce (Rhymes of My Heart) Award from the Czech Republic, Oscar Friar has gone on to entertain audiences around the world.
Friar is considered both a young prodigy in the world of poetry and an old soul in the world of prose, making him pretty much a middle-aged poet with a voice that is to be reckoned with. Poetry is for the birds is his first work that has been translated to English, but rest assured, American hasn't heard the last from this new talent.
Poetry is for the Birds is the first of many books of poetry that will be translated for English-speaking audiences. This Spring, look for Oscar Friar's vastly popular second book, Our Urge to Merge.
