Grief is the Thing with Feathers was a sensational debut of astonishing literary merit. Sensitive, thoughtful and stunningly original, it has been a staple recommendation in the bookshop since its publication. Lanny, then, has been awaited eagerly by all of us. It does not disappoint.
Once again, Max Porter has crafted an entirely fresh form of fiction. This is a novel that winds across and down the page; that lingers in between fragments of whispers and shape-shifting spirits. It is a novel that tells the story of a remarkable young boy through the voices of those closest to him, and those who would have the most to lose if anything were to happen to him.
Lanny is one of the most significant literary achievements of 2019; this event promises to be a highlight of the year.
