George: A Magpie Memoircover of George: A Magpie Memoir
By Frieda Hughes

Available as: print book

Life changing pivots can come in unexpected parcels and moments, for poet Frieda Hughes it was a fragile fledgling magpie’s arrival.  Hughes is the daughter of literary-icons Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes and after a childhood spent being uprooted, constantly moving and attending 13 different schools, she yearns for a final and forever home.  The book draws from journal entries between 2007-2009 and weaves together a sense of place, gardening, bird companionship, loss and memory.  Written with humor and added insight from a distance of many years.
