CLR author, artist, poet, photographer, essayist Helen Macdonald has won the Costa Book award, with her extraordinary H is for Hawk. Not only is the CLR super chuffed for her, but is also super proud at being the very first publishers (blogosphere notwithstanding) of material featuring Mabel – including Helen’s own drawing of the goshawk for issue #1 and a close-up photograph for issue #2 – not to be found in H is for Hawk, folks – buy them here! And it’s not only about the Goshawk: Helen opens our very first issue with her poem ‘Partridges’ (which the TLS called “the feather in our caps”) and has a fine essay in issue #5, ‘Covert naturalists: ethologists hunting objectivity in the field.’ Fans of H should explore our back catalogue for more: more of Mabel and more of Helen.

Thank you, Chris Law and the rest at Geerings Press, I don’t know how you do it: every time immaculate.
It’s been a while, but the issue is worth it. Our very first play (in lines of one word, no less/more, by Ish Klein). An introduction to the Critique of Pure Poetry (Drew Milne). Raymond Geuss on fear, America and Gore Vidal. A review of the collected Hope Mirrlees by ed. Rosie Šnajdr, following from Mirrlees’s ‘Paris’ in issue 6. And much, much more.
