Encore: Helen Macdonald, “H is for Hawk”

While away on a family vacation, I presented an encore broadcast of my interview with Helen Macdonald, the author of “H is for Hawk,” which received rapturous acclaim and major literary prizes. It’s probably my favorite book of the last year or so, and I was pleased to see that the critical acclaim translated to commercial success: the book soared to the upper reaches of The New York Times Bestseller list. It also landed on the iBooks recommended Summer Reading list. (In a slightly bit of odd timing to be away, this show effectively marked the 12th anniversary of “Talking Animals,” which I launched June 13, 2003 at KUCI in Irvine.)

About the author
Duncan Strauss is the producer-host of “Talking Animals,” which he launched at KUCI in California in 2003, combining his passions for animals, radio, journalism, music and comedy. The show has aired since late 2005 on Tampa’s WMNF. Strauss lives in Jupiter Farms, FL with his family, including four cats, two horses and one dog. He spends each day talking to those animals, and maintains they talk right back to him, an as yet unverified claim.
