Free download Two Small Birds 100 Dave Newman È 0 Free download characters Two Small Birds S take flight in the worst possible way This is the story of what it means to be family to be working class and to dream of being a poet in a world that refuses books Set in tiny apartments and roadside diners. Dan Charles is a recent college graduate the passion of his studies Poetry With a love of Walt Whitman a deep curiosity of Thoreau and an obsession with Carl Sandburg he finds himself stuck in the humdrum everyday working life of western Pennsylvania In a small world where Poetry is laughed at education is shunned and the love of arts is not commonly shared Dan moves from job to job trying to make it on his own His parents have moved to Michigan after the plant his father worked for closed down Dan is left to tread water with his slightly older brother John who sells industrial parts to local businesses and has a much better grasp on their current reality than Dan at least we re led to think so Two Small Birds by Dave Newman is a novel written in the first person character of Dan and reads much like the character s memoir We are mesmerized by Dan s blunt account of his life and sympathetic to his plight in a setting that ignores who is forcing him to conform to the reality of its everyday life But Dan s brother John has a plan for both of them to make it in this world His idea is for Dan to take a job as a truck driver and they will save what he makes to eventually start their own business Dan takes the job and we are taken on a whirlwind tour of Dan s experience through road trips across America bars whorehouses and the oddest of situationsNewman s stylistic writing allows us to clearly hear Dan s sometimes desperate voice We feel his depression we get angry with him and we feel as hopeless as he does Through it all Dan and his brother escape through the many barrooms of western Pennsylvania where they drink fight argue and hatch crazy plans that may or may not succeed Newman s supporting characters are as real and as genuine as the main character John is the older brother who is supposed to be some sort of superior authority yet like most fails miserably in the role Becca is Dan s taunting and irritating girlfriend whose passion for sex he shares She is a lively goofy and a well drawn character we d love to slap as much as Dan wouldNewman keeps us traveling with Dan turning the pages to discover what will happen to him how his life will ultimately turn out Early in the book after a night at the bar we are placed in a tense and nail biting scene with Dan and John in the front seat And then Newman brilliantly takes us back into the past leading us up that very moment which will be Dan s ultimate epiphany Towards the end of the novel Dan sums up his current stage of life in a moment of clarity For the past ten months I never worked harder or hours at a worse job in my life and I d worked terrible jobs since I was a teenager but the rest of it my free time was like a party I d dreamed for myself back in high school I seldom lived without immediate access to drugs or copious amounts of alcohol There were strippers There were hookers There were fights Following my brother was my only plan I was clumsy with everything even when I stood still even when my hands were empty The way I talked was a beat off The way I dressed was pathetic As we return to the front seat of the car the climactic scene ends with the realization we hope that Dan will find throughout the book The final words become a perfect analogy of Dan s life as he s known it and the change of life comes over him Newman has created a luminous coming of age novel that shines not only on the main character but on an everyday American setting that many know nothing about Two Small Birds is a top shelf literary accomplishment establishing Newman comfortably in the category of his idols
