The expulsion from school of their eldest son shatters the middle-class security of Maggie, a writer, and Charlie, a journalist. Since childhood, Toby has been diffident and self-absorbed, but the threat of drug taking and his refusal (or inability) to discuss his evident unhappiness, disturbs them sufficiently to seek professional help. Veering between private agony and public cheerfulness, Maggie and Charlie struggle to support their son and cope with the reactions - and advice - of friends and relatives. The Birds on the Trees was shortlisted for 'The Lost Man Booker Prize'.

    " Nina Bawden knows people so well. She draws characters that are complicated and believable. A tender, honest, thoughtful telling of what it means to be in a family touched by mental illness. "
