When naturalist and falconer Helen Macdonald lost her beloved father, she thought her world was ending Seems apropos, then, that her journey from crippling grief to something resembling grace is on the wings of another deadly bird of prey the notoriously prickly, and murderous, goshawk In H Is for Hawk, you will meet Mabel, not your typical bloodthirsty specimen, as she is trained to hunt like the goshawks of yore It is this brash, slightly mad undertaking that wrenches Macdonald free from despair, and brings her to a place where she can begin again Doesnt sound like your kind of thing Youd be surprised Macdonalds gorgeously wrought prose holds you in thrall from the first page, and provides something akin to the escape, and salvation, that nature provides her In Hawk you will also learn about the famed Arthurian novelist T.H White, a kindred soul to Macdonald in certain ways One of the things that endeared him to her was his childish delight with all things wild, something youll be hard pressed not to experience as soon as you tap into this tome Erin KodicekWinner of the Samuel Johnson PrizeNamed the Costa Book of the Year 1 best seller in the UKA Guardian and Economist Best Book of the Year Breathtaking Helen Macdonald renders an indelible impression of a raptor s fierce essenceand her ownwith words that mimic feathers, so impossibly pretty we don t notice their astonishing engineering Vicki Constantine Croke, New York Times Book Review cover review Helen Macdonald s beautiful and nearly feral book, H Is for Hawk, reminds us that excellent nature writing can lay bare some of the intimacies of the wild world as well Her book is so good that, at times, it hurt me to read it It draws blood, in ways that seem curative An instant classic Dwight Garner, New York Times Extraordinary indelible it contains one of the most memorable passages I ve read this year, or for that matter this decade Mabel is described so vividly she becomes almost physically present on the page Lev Grossman, TIME Captivating and beautifully written, it s a meditation on the bond between beasts and humans and the pain and beauty of being alive People Book of the Week One of the loveliest things you ll read this year You ll never see a bird overhead the same way again A Jason Sheeler, Entertainment Weekly A singular book that combines memoir and landscape, history and falconry it is not like anything I ve ever read what Macdonald tells us so eloquently in her fine memoir is that transformation of our docile or resigned lives can be had if we only look up into the world Susan Straight, Los Angeles Times Had there been an award for the best new book that defies every genre, I imagine it would have won that too Coherent, complete, and riveting, perhaps the finest nonfiction I read in the past year Kathryn Schulz, New Yorker The art of Macdonald s book is in the way that she weaves together various kinds of falling apartthe way she loops one unraveling thread of meaning into another What s lovely about it is the clarity with which she sees both the inner and outer worlds that she lives in Caleb Crain, New York Review of Books One of the most riveting encounters between a human being and an animal ever written Simon Worrall, National Geographic Assured, honest and raw a soaring wonder of a book Daneet Steffens, Boston Globe An elegantly written amalgam of nature writing, personal memoir, literary portrait and an examination of bereavement It illuminates unexpected things in unexpected ways Guy Gavriel Kay, Washington Post To categorize this work as merely memoir, nature writing or spiritual writing would understate Macdonald s achievement her prose glows and burns Karin Altenberg, Wall Street Journal Dazzling Kate Guadagnino, Vogue Unsparing, fierce a superior accomplishment There s not a line here that rings false every insight is hard won Macdonald has found the ideal balance between art and truth David Laskin, Seattle Times One of the best books about nature that I ve ever read Macdonald s wonderful gift for language and her keen observations bring pleasure to every page Karen Sandstrom, Cleveland Plain Dealer With sumptuously poetic prose there is deft interplay between agony and ecstasy, elegy and rebirth, wildness and domesticity, alongside subtle reminders about the cruelty of nature and our necessary faith in humanity Malcolm Forbes, Minneapolis Star Tribune One of a kind Macdonald is a poet, her language rich and taut As she descends into a wild, nearly mad connection with her hawk, her words keep powerful track She brings her observer s eye and poet s voice to the universal experience of sorrow and loss Barbara Brotman, Chicago Tribune A heart poundingly good read Helen W Mallon, Philadelphia Inquirer H Is for Hawk is about attention about seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, crying, screaming, raging it is, in short, quite deliberately about reckoning with the wild within as well as without, as each informs, mimics, and illuminates the other Dinah Lenney, Los Angeles Review of Books A really beautiful book It is a bit about death and loss It s about literature It s about nature She goes into so much detail It s very rich Philippa Gregory, Tampa Bay Times Incandescent glorious, passionate, and heartbreaking Sy Montgomery, Orion A wonderful, hard to classify, nonfiction chimera this book grips at your heart Rain Taxi Written in limpid, allusive prose, H Is for Hawk is a significant contribution to the literature of the human encounter with the natural world Sierra Club Magazine A triumph Nick Willoughby, Salon The hawk book s form is perfect It prickles your skin the way nature can when you are surprised by an animal in your path Some books are not books but visitations, and this one has crossed its share of thresholds before arriving here, to an impossible middle perch between wilderness and culture, past and present, life and death Katy Waldman, Slate A genre busting dazzler of a book, worthy of the near universal accolades that it s received so far Elisabeth Donnelly, Flavorwire Extraordinary Macdonald elegantly weaves multitudinous and extremely complex issues into a single work of seamless prose Lucy Scholes, The Daily Beast The echoes of myth in Macdonald s writing, however subtle and unobtrusive, lend her book an emotional weight usually reserved only for literature, and a grace only for poetry But this is one of the book s great achievements to belong to several genres at once, and to succeed at all of them Madeleine Larue, The Millions Macdonald s writingabout soil and weather, myth and history, pain and its slow easingretains the qualities of her hawk Mabel s wild heart, and the commanding scope and piercing accuracy of her hawk s eye Joanna Scutts, Newsday Brutal yet redemptive a real stunner Alexis Burling, The Oregonian Gorgeous Diane Rehm, The Diane Rehm Show A wonder both of nature and of meditative writing Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air with Terry Gross To read Helen Macdonald s new memoir is to have every cell of your body awake and alive Robin Young, Here and Now In this profoundly inquiring and wholly enrapturing memoir, Macdonald exquisitely and unforgettably entwines misery and astonishment, elegy and natural history, human and hawk Donna Seaman, Booklist starred review An inspired, beautiful and absorbing account of a woman battling griefwith a goshawk Writing with breathless urgency Macdonald broadens her scope well beyond herself to focus on the antagonism between people and the environment Whether you call this a personal story or nature writing, it s poignant, thoughtful and movingand likely to become a classic in either genre Kirkus Reviews starred review A unique and beautiful book with a searing emotional honesty, and descriptive language that is unparalleled in modern literature Costa Book Award citation H is for Hawk is a work of great spirit and wonder, illuminated equally by terror and desire Each beautiful sentence is capable of taking a reader s breath The book is built of feather and bone, intelligence and blood, and a vulnerability so profound as to conjure that vulnerability s shadow, which is the great power of honesty It is not just a definitive work on falconry it is a definitive work on humanity, and all that can and cannot be possessed Rick Bass A lovely touching book about a young woman grieving over the death of her father becoming rejuvenated by training one of the roughest, most difficult creatures in the heavens, the goshawk Jim Harrison In addition to being an excellent memoir of loss and grief, H is for Hawk is a wonderful exploration of how birds of prey can function as metaphor to produce art and a roadmap for human lives Read it and enrich your life Dan O Brien Rich with the poetry of ideation, the narrative flows through the author s deeply textured story of personal loss like a mountain wind, swirling seamlessly through fields of literature, biology, natural history, and the art of hunting with hawks Readers might do well to absorb this book a bite at a timebut be prepared for a full meal Lynn Schooler A beautiful book on so many levels Macdonald fearlessly probes each facet of grief and traverses its wilderness to reach redemption But most beautiful of all is the complex, layered bond that builds between her and Mabel, her hawk Who would have guessed that human and bird could share so much Jan DeBlieu In this elegant synthesis of memoir and literary sleuthing Macdonald describes in beautiful, thoughtful prose how she comes to terms with death in new and startling ways Publishers Weekly A dazzling piece of work deeply affecting, utterly fascinating and blazing with love a deeply human work shot through, like cloth of gold, with intelligence and compassionan exemplar of the mysterious alchemy by which suffering can be transmuted into beauty I will be surprised if a better book than H is for Hawk is published this year Melissa Harrison, Financial Times More than any other writer I know, including her beloved T.H White, Macdonald is able to summon the mental world of a bird of prey she extends the boundaries of nature writing As a naturalist she has somehow acquired her bird s laser like visual acuity As a writer she combines a lexicographer s pleasure in words as carefully curated objects with an inventive passion for new words or for ways of releasing fresh effects from the old stock Macdonald looks set to revive the genre Mark Cocker, Guardian A talon sharp memoir that will thrill and chill you to the bone Macdonald has just the right blend of the scientist and the poet, of observing on the one hand and feeling on the other Craig Brown, Daily Mail What Macdonald has achieved is a very rare thing in literaturea completely realistic account of a human relationship with animal consciousness Her training of Mabel has the suspense and tension of the here and now You are gripped by the slightest movement, by the turn of every feather It is a soaring performance and Mabel is the star John Carey, Sunday Times A well wrought book, one part memoir, one part gorgeous evocation of the natural world and one part literary meditation lit with flashes of grace, a grace that sweeps down to the reader to hold her wrist tight with beautiful, terrible claws The discovery of the season Erica Wagner, Economist The magnificent H is for Hawk has grabbed me by its talons it s nature writing, but not as you know it Astounding Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller It sings I couldn t stop reading Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and A Spot of Bother This beautiful book is at once heartfelt and clever in the way it mixes elegy with celebration elegy for a father lost, celebration of a hawk found and in the finding also a celebration of countryside, forbears of one kind and another, life in death At a time of very distinguished writing about the relationship between human kind and the environment, it is immediately pre eminent Andrew Motion, author of In the Blood A deep, dark work of terrible beauty that will open fissures in the stoniest heart Macdonald is a survivor she has produced one of the most eloquent accounts of bereavement you could hope to read A grief memoir with wings The Bookseller A book made from the heart that goes to the heart It combines old and new nature and human nature with great originality No one who has looked up to see a bird of prey cross the sky could read it and not have their life
