H is for Hawk

Helen Macdonald

Editura: Vintage
This is number one Best-seller. It is winner of the costa Book of the Year. It is winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction. It was winner of the Prix DU Melleur Livre Entranger. As a child, Helen Macdonald was determined to become a falconer, learning the arcane terminology and reading all the classic books. Years later, when her father died and she was struck deeply by grief, she became obsessed with the idea of training her own goshawk. She bought Mabel for GBP800 on a Scottish quayside and took her home to Cambridge, ready to embark on the long, strange business of trying to train this wildest of animals. H is for Hawk is an unflinchingly honest account of Macdonald's struggle with grief during the difficult process of the hawk's taming and her own untaming. This is a book about memory, nature and nation, and how it might be possible to reconcile death with life and love.
