The Missing Child takes on the big themes - love, hope, madness, death. In the imaginary valley of Agassiz, where the extraordinary is as real as the ordinary, Birdsell's lyrical prose creates a new language for the struggle of identity and hope, a struggle that is as central to the theme of Canadian identity as it is to each of us.
