Max Porter’s first novel, Grief is the Thing with Feathers won the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year, the International Dylan Thomas Prize and was shortlisted for many others. It has been translated in to 27 languages. His new best selling novel: Lanny focuses on a village outside London and no different from many others. Yet it belongs to England’s mysterious past and its confounding present. Porter’s story is exhilarating, disquieting and deeply affecting. The plot bowls along in a compulsive way – in search of the boy, Lanny and Porter’s genius with words leaves you breathless.
