A story of lost mothers and daughters, TONGUE OF A BIRD follows Maxine, an emotionally wounded young search-and-rescue pilot, who returns to her childhood home in the Adirondacks to search for Charlotte, a missing 12-year-old girl. During the search, Maxine reconnects with her Polish refugee grandmother, and through her dreams, is forced to confront her memories of her mother, who committed suicide, abandoning her.

“Wonderful free-flowing skeins of imagery.”
The Village Voice
