A beautiful elegiac book that can be read in a sitting or slowly over time. While previous knowledge and appreciation of Crow by Ted Hughes is not required it will deepen your experience.
This broke and soothed my heart in equal measure. So many relatable moments and helpful lines for grief. A very personal book. Exceptional.
Exceptional. I'm so grateful this found me.
Pair with the Phil Elverum (aka Mount Eerie) album A Crow Looked at Me for the full plunge
A delight to read despite its subject matter. The words kept alight the continuum of his verse. Cleverly written.
An astonishing and brilliant book. I put a hold on it after reading an early review because I like Ted Hughes' poetry and I like crows (as animals and tricksters); and I especially like writers who are not afraid to play with the novel as narrative. I think this is an amazing debut, and look forward to reading much more by Max Porter.
A haunting, beautiful read about grief. Porter's language is poetic and playful and the intrusion of the Crow on their family is a fantastic embodiment of the emotional effects of bereavement.
A prose poem about grief written by a Ted Hughes fan. Not maudlin. Can be read in an hour.
Not quite a novel, not quite short stories, not quite poetry. It is sad and funny and moving and thoughtful.
Loved the style of this book - lyrical and quick read. Found myself empathizing and smiling along. A triumph of a debut.
amazingly i laughed in places; a wonderful book
