Grief is the thing with feathers

Grief is the thing with feathers Max Porter

In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death.

The father of the boys, 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 talent.

  • “Amazing and unforgettable.”- The Times
  • “Dazzlingly good . . . Anyone who has ever loved someone, or lost someone, or both, will be gripped by it. It's very sad and very funny.” - Robert Macfarlane
