Max Porter - Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year
The Acorn, Penzance, Parade Street, Penzance, TR18 4BU
Date: Thursday 30th April 2020
We are delighted to announce a very special evening with Max Porter, one of the most original and exciting authors to enter the literary stage in recent years.
Max Porter’s first novel, 'Grief Is the Thing with Feathers' won many prestigious awards including The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year, the International Dylan Thomas Prize, the Europese Literatuurprijs and the BAMB Readers’ Award.
Max’s follow-up novel 'Lanny' was published to great acclaim last year.
It was Longlisted for the MAN Booker Prize and the Wainwright Prize and shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize.
Chimerical, audacious, strange and wonderful – Lanny is a song to difference and imagination, to friendship, youth and love.
It is magical and otherworldly and cements Max Porter as an author to get excited about.
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.
This event is put on in collaboration with Falmouth University.
