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.
