In The Secret Life of the Owl, John Lewis-Stempel celebrates all the realities of this magnificent creature, whose natural powers are as fantastic as any myth.

Owls feature in every major culture from the Stone Age onward. They are creatures of the night, and thus of magic. They are the birds of ill-tidings, the avian messengers from the Other Side. But owls – with the sapient flatness of their faces, their big, round eyes, their paternal expressions – are also reassuringly familiar.
