Description
(Winner of the 2012 Arab American Book Award for Fiction and an Indie Book Pick) For five years, the Muir family has been haunted by the disappearance of Felice, who at 13 ran away from the tropical paradise that is their Miami home to live as a street kid in Miami Beach, in Diana Abu-Jaber's multilayered fourth novel. Now that Felice is turning 18, her mother Avis, a pastry chef, her father Brian, a real estate attorney, and her brother Stanley, who runs an organic market, each confront their sense of loss and betrayal, while Felice herself must reckon with the guilty secret that drove her away, and face her fear of losing her family completely.

"This Jordanian American author writes about food so enticingly that her books should be published on sheets of phyllo dough. Birds of Paradise contains her most mouthwatering writing ever, but it's no light after-dinner treat. This is a full-course meal, a rich, complex and memorable story that will leave you lingering gratefully at her table."Washington Post
