The magnum opus from Alejandro Jodorowsky - film director, spiritual guru and tarot master, innovator behind classic comics The Incal and Metabarons and legend of Latin American literature. Where the Bird Sings Best is a novelisation of the fantastic story of the Jodorowskys' emigration from Ukraine to Chile amidst the political and cultural upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries. Like One Hundred Years of Solitude, Jodorowsky's book transforms family history into heroic legend. It is kaleidoscopic, exhilarating, erotic and truly mythic.

A fascinating, creative way to make the family history fun. The span from Russia to South America, and the real struggles or real people that came through the narrative kept my interest all the way through. I am not a big fan of magic realism, but still recommend the book.
