H is for Hawk

9780224097000If there’s only one book you’ll read this year, please let it be Helen Macdonald’s beyond excellent memoir H is for Hawk. It’s many things in one: a social history of falconry, a personal account of taming a goshawk, a psychological portrait of novelist T.H. White, and a haunting tale of bereavement and the slow road upwards from depression. Macdonald conjures up images you’ll never forget and her way of looking at the world will alter your own forever.
