Max Porter - Grief is the Thing With Feathers (New Paperback)
A Sunday Times Novel of The 21st Century. Winner of the 2016 International Dylan Thomas Prize and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Goldsmiths Prize.
In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death. Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar and scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness.
In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.
This extraordinary debut, full of unexpected humour and emotional truth, marks the arrival of a thrilling and significant new talent.
