Lanny
by
Max
Porter

A surprising read, but absolutely absorbing. Told in multiple voices, Lanny exposes the relationships between husband and wife, parents and child, various village inhabitants, the villagers and the local recluse, and the village with nature, or more precisely with Dead Papa Toothwort, a figure who embodies nature and the history of the village. I was sceptical when I started the book, but became engrossed and now I'm a Max Porter fan!
