Publisher's summary

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2019

Not far from London, there is a village. This village belongs to the people who live in it and to those who lived in it hundreds of years ago. It belongs to England's mysterious past and its confounding present. It belongs to Mad Pete, the grizzled artist. To ancient Peggy, gossiping at her gate. To families dead for generations, and to those who have only recently moved here. But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort who has woken from his slumber in the woods. Dead Papa Toothwort, who is listening to them all.

Chimerical, audacious, strange and wonderful - a song to difference and imagination, to friendship, youth and love, Lanny is a globally anticipated novel from Max Porter.

This book has changed me: a wonderful experience.

I loved every word: listening to this story was like a kind of physical kindness being visited on me. I wish that I could create a work of art that has even half the impact or feeling of this work. Congratulations and sincere thanks to Max Porter.
