Auteur: Helen Macdonald

Now in paperback, this memoir won the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction. Macdonald recounts how she dealt with the death of her father by training a goshawk, in a book which combines autobiography, nature writing and the exploration of myths and literature, as she weaves the story of novelist T. H. White into her narrative. 'A deeply human work shot through. . . with intelligence and compassion. . . ' Melissa Harrison, }Financial Times

This is the Number One Bestseller; Winner of the Costa Book of the Year. Winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction. 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.
