Publisher Description

Now a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Jason Bateman and Christopher Walken.

“The Family Fang is a comedy, a tragedy, and a tour-de-force examination of what it means to make art and survive your family….The best single word description would be brilliant.”
—Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto

“It’s The Royal Tenenbaums meets Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I’d call The Family Fang a guilty pleasure, but it’s too damn smart….A total blast.”
—Hannah Pittard, author of The Fates Will Find Their Way

Owen King (We’re All in This Together) calls author Kevin Wilson, “the unholy child of George Saunders and Carson McCullers.” 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, you’ll certainly want to invite this Family into your home.

What impressed me most about this novel was how simple it was. Simple, yet deeply funny and warm.

I never quite knew what might happen next and that kept me jumping into each new chapter straight away. The characters were unique. The plot was weird, but somehow totally believable. And the writing was superb. Every now and then I’d hit a sentence that was so beautifully witty and funny and pitch-perfect. By the end, I was thoroughly wrapped up in this crazy family. Quite an accomplishment.

A beautiful touching book

Makes me want to keep reading more but also make me wanna slow down to savor every line. A novel about family and love in a quasi magical reality. Wonderful book.
