â€śThe 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€ťâ€”Ann Patchett, author of Bel Cantoâ€śItâ€™s The Royal Tenenbaums meets Whoâ€™s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Iâ€™d call The Family Fang a guilty pleasure, but itâ€™s too damn smartâ€¦.A total blast.â€ťâ€”Hannah Pittard, author of The Fates Will Find Their WayOwen King (Weâ€™re All in This Together) calls author Kevin Wilson, â€śthe unholy child of George Saunders and Carson McCullers.â€ť 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, youâ€™ll certainly want to invite this Family into your home.
