“Helen Macdonald’s H is for Hawk is an exquisitely crafted memoir about grief, the beauty and sorrow of Nature. Her prose is as hard and bright as steel. Fall is when I also go back to Moby-Dick, because it’s the genuine article Great American Novel. Every time I read it, I find new and wondrous passages about race, democracy and the glory of the sea. And I’m reading every scrap I can find of Jeanne Marie Laskas’ not-quite-out-yet Concussion, which tells about how football can destroy your brain. I figure it’ll help me put FSU’s losses in perspective.”
