This is a small, quirky novel whose protagonist, Lyman, works solitary nights cleaning the Houston, TX highway loop of things most drivers whiz past, like wounded animals, roadkill and lost objects. He struggles to overcome his solitude with Fiona, a woman he meets at the local college library. This fun, often funny book creates likable and memorable characters, including a talkative, orphaned parrot that Lyman tries to reunite with its owner even as he comes to care about it.

Fun book to read, a quirky romance along with the mystery of a found parrot. They made a movie of this book!! It is "A Bird of the Air." (2011)

a quirky, unusual love story. This is a girl meets boy and girl takes charge sort of story. Girl saves boy while trying to help boy find the meaning of life. They don't quite find the meaning of life but they come pretty close. A parrot plays a big part in the plot.
