Review | Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up Grief is the Thing with Feathers, other than the basic plot. I anticipated an unusual, haunting story filled with metaphor, but it goes beyond that to deliver something truly remarkable. 411 more words
