I Hate To Leave This Beautiful Place is Howard Norman's new memoir, and is remarkable because it gives clues to Howard's own fascinating move through life. From a boyhood summer, through his time as a translator of Inuit tales and a student of birds, and onto an act of deeply felt violence that occurs in the form of a murder-suicide, when Norman and his wife loan their DC home to a poet and her young son, this book is a haunting and redemptive story of his world.
Two of Howard Norman's novels, The Northern Lights (1987) and The Bird Artist (1994), were nominated for the National Book Award. His other novels include The Museum Guard, The Haunting of L, Devotion, and What is Left the Daughter. He lives with his wife, poet Jane Shore in Vermont and in Wahsington, D.C. .
