A review of Grief is the Thing with Feathers


Grief is a thing with feathers by Max Porter

In a London flat two young boys are facing the unbearable sadness of their mother’s sudden death.
Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar is facing loneliness and despair.
Into their lives comes a Crow who is cranky, antagonistic, yet caring. It threatens to stay until he is no longer needed.
This is part fable and part essay on grief told with great humour.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys playing with words.
