In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death. Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar and scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him. This extraordinary debut, full of unexpected humour and emotional truth, marks the arrival of a thrilling and significant new talent.

  1. A moving read
    Rockdoc, 13 april 2019

    Airport. Long wait for flight to be announced. Wander through the duty-free shops. End up in a book store. Can't find anything I want to read. Pick a random book. It just happens to be this one. Open it distractedly and read two pages. Am caught. Buy it. Read it in two hours! Captures grief perfectly, but you better know your Ted Hughes to get full value from it. Go on, try it yourself...
