“It’s hard to express how much I loved Lanny. Books this good don’t come along very often. It’s a novel like no other, an exhilarating, disquieting, joyous read. It will reach into your chest and take hold of your heart.” Maggie O’Farrell
Following the success of Max Porter’s debut novel, Grief is the Thing with Feathers (including recently a sold-out stage adaptation at the Barbican with Cillian Murphy), comes Lanny – an audacious and wonderful novel about friendship, folklore and the imagination.
“Max Porter’s second novel is a fable, a collage, a dramatic chorus, a joyously stirred cauldron of words.” The Guardian
Join Max Porter as he discusses his dazzling new novel with Sarah Crown, director of literature at the Arts Council.
