Description

An innovative hybrid of fairy tale, fable, and myth, Lanny is Max Porter's hugely anticipated second novel.

Part of the Belfast International Arts Festival

There’s a village sixty miles outside London. This village belongs to the people who live in it and to the people who lived in it hundreds of years ago. But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort, a figure schoolchildren used to draw green and leafy, choked by tendrils growing out of his mouth. He is listening, intently, for a mischievous, enchanting boy whose parents have recently made the village their home. Lanny.

Max Porter’s first novel, Grief Is the Thing with Feathers, was published to widespread acclaim in 2015, winning the Sunday Times/Peters, Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year, the International Dylan Thomas Prize, the Europese Literatuurprijs and the BAMB Readers' Award. It has been translated into twenty-seven languages and was recently adapted by Enda Walsh into a stage production starring Cillian Murphy.

Chaired by John Self.
