Publisher Description

Shortlisted for The Age Book of the Year, the ALS Gold Medal, and longlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Award.

"Okay, tell me which do you want: to be able to fly or to be invisible?"

What if every now and then, the people in your family woke up with a special power?

Over the span of 30 years we are invited into the secrets of one very unique family, from a mystified teenager to an over-tired night nurse to a conflicted exile.

The surprising strengths they each find show them how to change their lives - and what the family needs in order to survive.

"A wonderful novel: imaginative, intelligent, empathetic... Like a cross between The Corrections and The Slap." - Sydney Morning Herald

"To tell you the narrative concerns a family whose members have superpowers is only to graze the surface of a moving and beautifully realised meditation on what it is to be an ordinary human being." - The Australian

"Grade: A... At once magical and very normal, a wishful fantasy about the strength it can take to love one's family members well." - Entertainment Weekly
