Animals don’t exist in order to teach us things, but that is what they have always done, and most of what they
teach us is what we think we know about ourselves.
From the bestselling author of H is for Hawk comes Vesper Flights, a transcendent collection of essays about the
human relationship to the natural world.
Helen Macdonald brings together a collection of her best-loved writing along with new pieces covering a thrilling
range of subjects. There are essays here on headaches, on catching swans, on hunting mushrooms, on twentiethcentury spies, on numinous experiences and high-rise buildings; on nests and wild pigs and the tribulations of
farming ostriches.
Vesper Flights is a book about observation, fascination, time, memory, love and loss and how we make the world
around us. Moving and frank, personal and political, it confirms Helen Macdonald as one of this century’s greatest
nature writers.
