Book by Wilson Kevin

Críticas:

"Wilson writes stylishly...but his real skill is...building up a slow-drip mystery....And [this] isn't the kind of book you [can] set aside....(I'm looking at you, Swamplandia!) It's the kind of book in which you need to know what happens...It's not what you think."--Esquire, 10 Best Books of 2011

"First-time novelist Wilson mixes dire humor and melancholy in this satirical portrait of the uniquely dysfunctional Fangs--husband-and-wife performance artists Caleb and Camille and their children, Annie and Buster--and offers a scathing critique of how the baby-boom generation maltreated Gen X."--Booklist Top Ten First Novels of 2011

"A wacky, wonderful debut about a performance artist couple and their long suffering kids."--People

"My favourite novel so far this year: Kevin Wilson's THE FAMILY FANG. Funny, smart, ingenious, moving, altogether great. Just buy it."--Nick Hornby

"Wilson writes with the studied quirkiness of George Saunders or filmmaker Wes Anderson, and there's some genuine warmth beneath all the surface eccentricity."--Entertainment Weekly

"What can you say for a novel about performance artists that begins "Mr. and Mrs. Fang called it art. Their children called it mischief"? ... That it's totally weird, and pretty wonderful. Most of all, that it manages to be brainy without sacrificing heart."--O, the Oprah Magazine

" [A] revitalizing blast of original thought; robust invention; screwball giddiness.... a family story that's out-of-the-box, and funny, and, also, genuinely moving. Wilson's inventive genius never stops for a rest break.... [a] strange and wonderful novel...that will linger in your mind long after."--NPR.org

"Irresistible...This strange novel deserves to be very successful.... Wilson's trim and intriguing narrative [captures] the selling out of one's life and children for the sake of notoriety.... I'd love to be able to see Annie's movies and read Buster's books, but I'll settle for being Wilson's fan instead."--Time magazine

"A proud descendant of the Sycamores in Kaufman and Hart's You Can't Take It With You....[T]he poignant truth...beneath the humor of this peculiar family: Our crazy parents' offenses sometimes loom so large that we don't realize just what they did for us until it's too late."--Washington Post

"Wilson's writing has a Houdini-like perfection, wherein no matter how grim the variables, each lovely sentence manages to escape with all its parts intact...Wilson keeps his plot moving swiftly enough to keep readers absorbed. And those sentences are really something."--Boston Globe
