Rowboat Book Club Book #59

Hey guys. We are almost done with this book list. Do you guys like this format? Do we need to go back to doing it the other way? Let me know please. We will be reading Grief Is The Thing With Feathers by Max Porter.

Winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize, this Kafkaesque, bizarre, and beautiful debut thrusts us deep inside an East London flat where a widower and his two young boys are reeling from a monumental loss. It’s the arrival of an uninvited houseguest—of the belching, burping, slurping (and hugging) kind—in the form of a giant, Ted Hughes-inspired crow that comforts the fledging family. Equal parts novella, poem, and play, Porter obliterates the confines of form, transforming the manuscript into a breathing living organism of its own. This book is guaranteed to change the way you see everyone precious in your life, and it’s a powerful reminder to love hard and relish everyday intimate moments.
