Book of the Month: H Is for Hawk

Our April Book of the Month is H Is for Hawk, Helen Macdonald’s New York Times bestseller and award winner (on more than 25 best books of the year lists!)

“It’s a story of grief, of nature and friendship and loneliness, but it’s really the story of an encounter with a wild, alien intelligence, one that makes the author feel wild and inhuman herself, but then more human than before. Macdonald has trained many hawks—she’s been obsessed with them since she was a girl—but after her father’s sudden death, she decides to take on the wildest of their breed, the goshawk. With a wonderfully practical knowledge of the ancient art of falconry and an artful and honest understanding of her own reckless desire, she turns their partnership into a moving and bracingly intelligent book that I’m certain will become a classic.”
Tom Nissley, Phinney Books, Seattle, WA
