Book description
Cao Wenxuan’s Feather tells the story of a single feather who is helplessly swept away on a journey of discovery and belonging. Encountering a variety of birds, from a kingfisher to a magpie, the feather is hopeful of meeting the bird it belongs to. Again and again, the feather is dismissed or ignored. Only when it calmly and contentedly accepts that perhaps it is simply a feather with no bird to call its own does fate offer a reunion…
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A single feather, blown about by the wind, asks a variety of birds if she belongs to them but is dismissed time and again until she gives up her quest.
