Description

A searing account of a father's struggle to save his remarkable son from a rare heart condition that threatens his life-"a powerful and lyric portrait of a son and a vibrant family" (Toni Morrison). Damon Weber is a brilliant kid-a skilled actor and a natural leader at school. Born with a congenital heart defect that required surgery when he was a baby, Damon's spirit and independence have always been a source of pride to his parents, who vigilantly look for any signs of danger. Unbowed by frequent medical checkups, Damon proves to be a talent on stage, appears in David Milch's HBO series Deadwood, and maintains an active social life, whenever he has the energy. But running through Damon's coming-of-age in the shadow of affliction is another story: his father Doron's relentless search for answers in a race against time. Immortal Bird is a stirring, gorgeously written memoir of a father's fight to save his son's life.
