A memoir of grief and love so beautifully written that I felt the cold, the loneliness, the fallen feathers of the goshawk Helen Macdonald chose to raise in her London flat. This book has won the Samuel Johnson Prize, is a Costa Book of the Year, and a must-read. Macdonald is a writer, a poet, historian, naturalist and affiliated research scholar at the University of Cambridge. Destined to be a classic.

Paris in 1862. Based on the life of Edouard Manet and his infamous portrait Olympia, this sensual and evocative novel captures  the life of the artist, his inspirations and model muses. Victorine Meurent is the red-haired beauty that embraces the art form that scandalizes Parisian high society. Terrific for art lovers and historical fiction readers.
