The instant NYT bestseller and award-winning sensation, Helen Macdonald's story of adopting & raising one of nature's most vicious predators has soared into the hearts of millions of readers worldwide. Fierce & feral, her goshawk Mabel's temperament mirrors Helen's own state of grief after her father's death, & together raptor & human "discover the pain and beauty of being alive" (People). H Is for Hawk is a genre-defying debut from one of our most unique and transcendent voices.
"Had there been an award for the best new book that defies every genre, I imagine it would have won that too... Coherent, complete, & riveting, perhaps the finest nonfiction I read in the past year." (New Yorker)
