A Bird Hits the Window is a sensitive and remarkably nuanced portrayal of a couple navigating intimacy, honesty, and grief as they try to carve out a path for their future. When a raven collides with their window one morning, the narrator and his wife find themselves worrying over its fate and their inability to ensure its survival—a reflection of the fragility of their own relationship. Written with Murakami-like precision and elegance, this story takes readers on an emotional journey marked by a breathtaking and poignant final image.
The main text is set in Albertan Pro, designed by BC type designer Jim Rimmer, with digital Franklin Gothic for display inside, and some old wood type printed letterpress for the wrapper.
