The permission of the holiday season is here. A classic novel, memoirs, confessions, and a search for Joseph Roth are now under my tree.
"H Is for Hawk" is Helen Macdonald's British award-winning memoir. There are few like it, notably because of its combined exploration of grief, falconry and the life of author T. H White, known best for penning "The Once and Future King." If anything, at least check out the great cover illustration. The book goes on sale in the U.S. next month.
