Lanny by Max Porter

Not far from London, there is a village.

This village belongs to the people who live in it and to those who lived in it hundreds of years ago.  It belongs to England’s mysterious past and its confounding present.

It belongs to Mad Pete, the grizzled artist.  To ancient Peggy, gossiping at her gate.  To families dead for generations, and to those who have only recently moved here.

But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort who has woken from his slumber in the woods.  Dead Papa Toothwort, who is listening to them all.

Chimerical, audacious, strange and wonderful – a song to difference and imagination, to friendship, youth and love, Lanny is the globally anticipated new novel from Max Porter.

Peer & Press Reviews

The writing is stunning and deeply affecting.  The plot thunders along.  This is a book that resolutely refuses to be categorised but to get somewhere close, think: Under Milk Wood meets Broadchurch.

Nathan Filer, author of The Shock of the Fall

Porter has an extraordinary ability to get under the reader’s skin and his story of a peculiar child and the even more peculiar Dead Papa Toothwort is a thing of total joy, written in prose that thrums with rhythm and life.

Alex Preston, Observer 2019 previews

It shouldn’t be possible for a book to be simultaneously heart-stopping, heart-shaking and pulse-racing, but that is only one of the extraordinary feats Max Porter pulls off in this astonishing novel.

Kamila Shamsie, author of Home Fire
