故事雖充滿濃郁的黑暗,讓人讀來,拋不開的感傷,但是作者Max Porter用他巧妙的筆,讓深刻的情感逐漸幻化出一股黑色的幽默,你以為不會再有出路的生命,打開一扇窗……在這不平凡的處女作 作者發揮上乘的文學功力,兼顧文字與故事的深度,發展出一本激動人心的作品。

Shortlisted for The Goldsmiths Prize 2015

'Dazzlingly good . . . Anyone who has ever loved someone, or lost someone, or both, will be gripped by it. It's very sad and very funny.' Robert Macfarlane

'In this slyly funny and thrillingly original work, Max Porter somehow pulls a brand new story out of the darkest despair.' Jenny Offill

'I'm not sure I've read anything like Max Porter's book before. It stunned me, full of beauty, hilarity, and thick black darkness. It will stay with me for a very long time.' Evie Wyld

In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death. Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar and scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness.

In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him.

As weeks turn to months and the pain of loss gives way to memories, the little unit of three starts to heal.

In this extraordinary debut - part novella, part polyphonic fable, part essay on grief - Max Porter's compassion and bravura style combine to dazzling effect. Full of unexpected humour and profound emotional truth, Grief Is the Thing with Feathers marks the arrival of a thrilling new talent.
