Max Porter’s just-released novel, Shy, taps into a troubling trope of our times.

A teenage boy has slipped out of a home for “very disturbed young men,” and we readers are privy to all the thoughts running through his head.

You can read an excerpt of Shy courtesy of the publisher at Literary Hub.

Porter previously wrote Lanny, which was longlisted for the Booker Prize, and Grief Is the Thing with Feathers, which won the International Dylan Thomas Prize.
