âThe Family Fang is a comedy, a tragedy, and a tour-de-force examination of what it means to make art and survive your familyâ¦.The best single word description would be brilliant.â
âAnn Patchett, author of Bel Canto
âItâs The Royal Tenenbaums meets Whoâs Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Iâd call The Family Fang a guilty pleasure, but itâs too damn smartâ¦.A total blast.â
âHannah Pittard, author of The Fates Will Find Their Way
Owen King (Weâre All in This Together) calls author Kevin Wilson, âthe unholy child of George Saunders and Carson McCullers.â With his novel, The Family Fang, the Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of Tunneling to the Center of the Earth comes through in a BIG way, with a funny, poignant, laugh-and-cry-out-loud (sometimes at the same time) novel about the art of surviving a masterpiece of dysfunction. Meet The Family Fang, an unforgettable collection of demanding, brilliant, and absolutely endearing oddballs whose lives are risky and mischievous performance art. If the writing of Gary Shteyngart, Miranda July, Scarlett Thomas, and Charles Yu excites you, youâll certainly want to invite this Family into your home.
