Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
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.

  • "Truly a work of art, of the kind so rarely achieved or attempted nowadays." Christopher Isherwood
  • "[In The Pilgrim Hawk] the reader is constantly being repositioned, constantly being forced to see something it didn't quite see before. Mr. Wescott's world is self-contained but precarious, and, like the real one, endlessly full of meaning." The New Yorker
