About this item

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.
