Written by Max Porter | Narrated by Annie Aldington & Clare Corbett
A seemingly typical English village is home to a peculiar folktale — the land belongs to a leafy mythical figure who will emerge after a long slumber. And when a new family joins the community, their mischievous son Lanny might be the one to awaken the magic. This Earphones Award winner is “a special kind of genius… So strange and so compulsive” (Mark Haddon, New York Times bestselling author).


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 rise 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.
