Helen Macdonald presents H is for Hawk
In conversation with Lev Grossman

Already a #1 bestseller in England and winner of the Costa Prize for Nonfiction, Helen Macdonald’s H is for Hawk is on one level the truly remarkable story of one woman’s resolve to raise and train the most bloodthirsty of birds: the goshawk. But it is also a heart-wrenching account of Macdonald’s grief at the sudden death of her father; a literary meditation on The Sword and the Stone author T.H. White (a writer who also sought to fill a void through training a goshawk); and a gripping piece of nature writing that the New York Times calls “beautiful and nearly feral,” which transports both writer and reader to the edge of humanity and back. The book has been passionately embraced by American readers, and Greenlight is honored to host Macdonald, who discusses her work with Fort Greene neighbor Lev Grossman, senior writer and book critic for TIME Magazine and the author of the Magicians trilogy.
