He can, if he is accompanied by a black rooster, his protector and friend. And if he is Martin, orphaned after a massacre, full of wisdom, courage and a pure heart. Too good for the selfish and idiotic villagers around him, his integrity entrances an itinerant painter with whom he departs on a quest. His heroic adventures through a morally abhorrent landscape, physically ravaged by war and famine, keep the reader cheering for him and his companion as this fairy tale for adults unfolds.

Set against a pseudo-medieval post-apocalyptic backdrop reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy, Angela Carter and Missouri Williams, this bestselling novel shines with the inner radiance of good deed in a naughty world that will leave you haunted, horrified, and completely riveted.

‘This appears light as a feather, yet elaborately crafted all the same.’ --― Rose-Maria Gropp

‘Boy with a Black Rooster magnificently superimposes the probable with the improbable, all the while connecting life and death with great intelligence and narrative proficiency.’ --― Pierre Deshusses, Le Monde des livres

‘A debut that is both admirable and truly unique.’ --― Jean-Baptiste Hamelin, Page des Libraires

‘I absolutely love this book! The plot untangles perfectly, and I could smell and taste every scene. It feels like an old story, one of those that stays with you forever, but every part of it is surprising and wonderful. I want to go straight back and read it all again.’ — Siân Hughes, author of Pearl, longlisted for The Booker Prize 2023

‘This novel is a danse macabre, a memento mori, a vision of good and evil pared down to the bones. Boy with a Black Rooster beckons the reader into a nightmare landscape of war, famine, plague and madness, and Stefanie vor Schulte’s storytelling verve is such that we make the journey gladly.’ — Sam Thompson, author of Communion Town

‘Wow, what a book! Fabular but true, this meticulously crafted and deceptively simple tale stole my heart, broke it, and put it back together again. Vor Schulte is unflinching in her depiction of the worst of humankind, its cruelty and violence, but she also shows how love and kindness can flourish in even the darkest times. A beautiful, heart-rending book.’ — Victoria MacKenzie, author of For Thy Great Pain Have Mercy On My Little Pain

‘This appears light as a feather, yet elaborately crafted all the same.’ — Rose-Maria Gropp in her laudatory speech for the Mara Cassens Prize
