"A Fluttered Dovecote" by George Manville Fenn. Published by Good Press. Good Press publishes a wide range of titles that encompasses every genre. From well-known classics & literary fiction and no. The most important stylistic feature of “The Story of My Dovecot” is the epiphany described in detail above. This is a device often used by Babel but never more successfully than in this.

  Doves start laying in mid-spring from what I can tell, with an average of two eggs per clutch. After hatching, the young doves (squabs) can’t fly until after the 4-week old mark. Until then, the squabs sit in their parents’ pigeonhole within their dovecote, and .   Presented as part of a book about his boyhood and dedicated to Gorky, the seminal “Story of My Dovecote” and “First Love” () suggest that Babel conceived of his oeuvre as a set of consecutive autobiographical cycles, not unlike Gorky’s autobiographical trilogy, and he continued to add to it, as he did to his two other major cycles.
