Mozart's Starling - Lyanda Lynn Haupt

Staff Pick
The beauty found in what is common is the theme of Lyanda Lynn Haupt's Mozart's Starling.  The author rescues an orphaned starling chick; soon a bond develops between her and one of these unloveliest of birds.  Haupt interweaves that story with an account of Mozart's pet starling, and what that can say about the way his music can still touch us: "Mozart's truest elegy for his small friend [was] to disturb us out of complacency: to show us the wild, imperfect murmuring harmony of the world we inhabit; to draw our own lives into the song.”
