              An entrancing new novel by the author of the prizewinning Grief Is the Thing with Feathers There's a village an hour from London. It's no different from many others today: one pub, one church, redbrick cottages, some public housing, and a few larger houses dotted about. Voices ri...se up, as they might anywhere, speaking of loving and needing and working and dying and walking the dogs. This village belongs to the people who live in it, to the land and to the land's past. It also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort, a mythical figure local schoolchildren used to draw as green and leafy, choked by tendrils growing out of his mouth, who awakens after a glorious nap. He is listening to this twenty-first-century village, to its symphony of talk: drunken confessions, gossip traded on the street corner, fretful conversations in living rooms. He is listening, intently, for a mischievous, ethereal boy whose parents have recently made the village their home. Lanny. With Lanny, Max Porter extends the potent and magical space he created in Grief Is the Thing with Feathers. This brilliant novel will ensorcell readers with its anarchic energy, with its bewitching tapestry of fabulism and domestic drama. Lanny is a ringing defense of creativity, spirit, and the generative forces that often seem under assault in the contemporary world, and it solidifies Porter's reputation as one of the most daring and sensitive writers of his generation.

              Nicola Hicks's sculpture and drawing practice has focused upon heroic, humanized animals and mythic, beast-like humans. From the moment she burst upon the wider public stage, there has been no doubting her remarkable talent. Picked out while still at the Royal College of Art by t...he late Elisabeth Frink as a fellow spirit, she quickly established an immediate presence among the artists of her generation as a serious and substantial figure. She was remarkable on every count, for she flew in the face of the critical expectations of those days not just in the nature of the actual imagery she celebrated-figurative, romantic and expressive-but also in the direct and gleeful joy she took in the physical making of these things. This book is a visual celebration of her work and features essays written by Will Self, Max Porter, Candia McWilliam and David Mamet. Published by Elephant, in association with Flowers Gallery

              Au coeur de la nuit, le vent d'est cingle la falaise. Entre deux rafales, des nuees d'oiseaux cognent aux vitres. Mais ce n'est pas la peur qui les precipite avec une telle force vers le monde des hommes...On retrouvera ici - et pas moins terrifiant - le recit qui inspira son che...f-d'oeuvre au maitre de l'angoisse, Alfred Hitchcock. Dans les autres nouvelles de ce recueil, l'horreur se fait plus insidieuse, le fantastique a peine etranger au reel. Il suffit d'un pommier a forme etrangement humaine, ou d'une ouvreuse de cinema qu'un jeune mecanicien a envie de suivre apres la seance... Et la grande romanciere anglaise, auteur de Rebecca et L'Auberge de la Jamaique, nous entraine vers le mystere a petits pas, a petites touches, au gre d'une ecriture subtile, singulierement moderne.
