"Goodbye, Bird" - Každý krok, gesto, slovo a pohľad dvadsaťosemročného muža, ktorý sa pred pár rokmi vrátil z armády, je odhalením, ktoré ho vracia na začiatok, keď realita stratila obrys a zmenila sa na nový, nepostihnuteľný svet. Vo svojich predstavách stelesňuje rozličné postavy, cíti prítomnosť svojej priateľky, spomína na detstvo a kamarátov z vojny, ktorí sú preč. Vymýšľa si príbehy a znovu nadobúda schopnosť obdivovať. Táto kniha je dobrodružstvom v hľadaní krásy, ktoré nemá začiatok ani koniec.

Goodbye, bird is another book written by Aram Pachyan. Here is a brief summary. Every step, gesture, word and vision of the twenty-eight-year-old young man who returned from the army several years ago, is a revelation, which takes him back to the begining, when the realityhad lost its shape, and turned into a new and imperceptible world. In his imagination he embodies different characters, feels the the presence of his girlfriend again, remembers his childhood and army friends, who are gone now. He invents stories and regains the ability for admiration. This book is an adventure in the searches of beauty, which doesn't have a begining and an end.
