H is for Hawk – Helen MacDonald


1 in stock


H is for Hawk – Helen MacDonald. Hardback in dustjacket (rrp £14.99). Dustjacket rubbed at extremities and a small (tea?) stain to upper cover (see last photograph), some pages have been dogeared but now flat again otherwise in excellent condition. When MacDonald’s father dies she becomes obsessed with the idea of training her own Goshawk. “Destined to be a classic of nature writing, H is for Hawk is a record of a spiritual journey – an unflinchingly honest account of her struggle with grief during the difficult process of the hawk’s taming and her own untaming. At the same time, it’s a kaleidoscopic biography of the brilliant and troubled novelist T. H. White, best known for The Once and Future King. It’s a book about memory, nature and nation, and how it might be possible to try to reconcile death with life and love”.
