Max Porter - Grief Is The Thing With Feathers


  • $12.00

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, was met with widespread critical acclaim on it's publication in 2015, and was the winner of multiple awards including the International Dylan Thomas Prize and Guardian First Book Award.
