Publisher's Summary

There’s a village an hour from London. It’s no different from many others today: one pub, one church, redbrick cottages, some public housing, and a few larger houses dotted about. Voices rise up, as they might anywhere, speaking of loving and needing and working and dying and walking the dogs. This village belongs to the people who live in it, to the land and to the land’s past. 

It also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort, a mythical figure local schoolchildren used to draw as green and leafy, choked by tendrils growing out of his mouth, who awakens after a glorious nap. He is listening to this 21st-century village, to its symphony of talk: drunken confessions, gossip traded on the street corner, fretful conversations in living rooms. He is listening, intently, for a mischievous, ethereal boy whose parents have recently made the village their home: Lanny.

So Glad I've Discovered Max Porter !

I was so looking forward to reading Lanny after having read Porter's first book, Grief Is the Thing With Feathers. Lanny does not disappoint. It is just as amazing in my opinion, yet all together different as it's more of a full length "mystery-type". This author has a style that is colorful, lyrical, poetic, and every other word that I can't think of at present!!! His storytelling captivates me and keeps my attention from beginning to end. I look forward to the next piece, and all that follow. BRAVO !!!!!!!
