In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death.

In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter.

This extraordinary debut, full of unexpected humour and emotional truth, marks the arrival of a thrilling and significant new talent.
