Atlanta couple Ben and Nina plan to move in together, but their relationship unravels when Ben dismisses Nina’s surprising claim that her dog can talk. Songs by Honeybird follows the pair as they move on without each other. Doctoral candidate Ben dives into research on the tragic story of Honeybird, the South’s first integrated rock band, while spiritual savant Nina searches for the elusive truth about her father’s death. Will the buried secrets of the past bring Ben and Nina back together — or send them down entirely new paths?
“I loved Peter McDade’s Songs by Honeybird, a novel that manages to
be simultaneously funny, serious, and quirky as hell. It’s a story about old
loves ending and new loves beginning, about the power of presence and
attention, and about the possibilities of life in the New South.”
—SUSAN REBECCA WHITE, author of We Are All Good People Here
Peter McDade’s new novel will be available on March 29, 2022.
