Wednesday 29th April, 7.30, St Endellion Hall
We’re sorry to announce but this event has been cancelled due to the virus crisis. We are hopeful Max’s tour of Cornwall is merely postponed so watch this space!
Max Porter’s utterly original debut novel, Grief is the Thing With Feathers, garnered rave reviews and quickly caught the public imagination with its deft portrayal of stumbling fatherhood, the processes of grief and the consolations of poetry. The reception has been no less clamorous for his second novel, Lanny. Lanny celebrates English rural mythology just as Grief does the harsh nature writing of Ted Hughes but it is also a deeply touching portrayal of boyhood, loneliness and the consolations (and pitfalls) of an active imagination.
In the first of what we hope will become regular out-of-festival festival events, we’re thrilled to be welcoming Max Porter to St Endellion where he’ll be in conversation with his friend Colin Midson, the genius behind the literature strand at the Port Eliot Festival. The event is put on in association with Falmouth University.
