Publisher Description

Normal Family is a wildly funny coming-of-age novel about a young boy's four consecutive holidays with his eccentric family. Over the course of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Independence Day, our young hero, Henry Pendergast, comes to know his once-famous author (and now alcoholic) grandfather George, who sobers up long enough to help Henry come to terms with the mystery surrounding his mother's mental illness. Henry somehow perseveres through a landmine of dysfunctional relatives amidst a family in decline, including siblings, parents and step family, all set against the social chaos of late-1960s America. Funny, bittersweet and highly entertaining, Normal Family might be the first novel whose entire action takes place over the family holidays.

Hysterical

Laughed out loud. Reminded me of Running with Scissors set in the 1960s. Highly reccommend to people who like to laugh at dysfunctional family literature.

Hilarious, taut storytelling

What a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this uproariously funny book. At times it seemed as if Trowden might have been writing about my own family. Highly recommended.
