Summary: Against a background of everyday life on a medieval English manor, here is a young girl's riotous account of her fourteenth year-a hilarious, earthy delight, and a most auspicious debut from a promising new writer.

Karen Cushman is an Assistant Director of the Museum Studies Department at John F. Kennedy University in the San Francisco Bay area. She lives with her husband and daughter in Oakland, CA.

Catherine, Called Birdy is Cushman's first book more.

Catherine, a spirited and inquisitive young woman of good family, narrates in diary form the story of her fourteenth year--the year 1290. "The period has rarely been presented for young people with such authenticity... this first novel is a delight."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer

The year is 1290 and the thirteen-year-old daughter of an English county knight keeps a journal in which she records the events of her life, particularly her longing for adventures beyond the usual role of women and her efforts to avoid being married off. less
