Description

In six wide-ranging essays, Kathleen Hale traces some of the most treacherous fault lines in modern America--from sexual assault to Internet trolling, from environmental illness to our own animal nature. In these thought-provoking stories of predators and prey, Hale proves herself to be an exhilarating new voice whose writing is both fearless and profound.

In "First I Got Pregnant. Then I Decided to Kill the Mountain Lion," Hale recounts the month she spent tracking a wild cat lost in the Hollywood Hills while pregnant; in "Prey," she tells the troubling story of her sexual assault as a freshman in college; other essays recount the mesmerizing stories of a trip to hunt wild hogs in Florida, and a standoff with an anonymous blogger. Taking no prisoners and fearing no subject matter, Kathleen Hale wields razor-sharp wit, uncommon levels of empathy, and daring honesty, even in detailing some of the most difficult moments of her life.

Outlandish, candid, and sometimes unsettling, Kathleen Hale Is a Crazy Stalker introduces an arresting new voice for this strange American century.
