Description
This powerful short novel describes the events of a single afternoon. Alwyn Towers, an American expatriate and sometime novelist, is staying with a friend outside of Paris, when a well-heeled, itinerant Irish couple drops in-with Lucy, their trained hawk, a restless, sullen, disturbingly totemic presence. Lunch is prepared, drink flows. A masquerade, at once harrowing and farcical, begins. A work of classical elegance and concision,  The Pilgrim Hawk  stands with Faulkner's The Bear  as one of the finest American short novels: a beautifully crafted story that is also a poignant evocation of the implacable power of love.
