How Can I Resist a Vicar?

I bought another book at Square Books today. I can't help it! I'm a sick man! Have pity. But come on! One of the blurbs called the book a "slim, delightful volume" that says "nearly all that need be said about birds and humans." Come on! That's what the Wall Street Journal said! That if I buy this book I will know almost everything about birds and humans! PLUS IT WAS WRITTEN BY A VICAR. Did you hear me? A vicar wrote it! Or, well, now I see that he co-wrote it. But still. How am I supposed to resist? Of course I am speaking of WINGED WONDERS: A CELEBRATION OF BIRDS IN HUMAN HISTORY.
