Inhaltsangabe:

Book by Wilson Kevin

Críticas:

"[A] delightfully quirky novel...completely relatable."--People, Top 10 Books of 2011

"In his debut novel, Kevin Wilson expertly navigates between pathos and black comedy while negotiating a smart debate about the human cost of sacrificing all for one's art. Fang has bite but is also incredibly fun."--Time magazine, Top 10 Fiction Books of 2011

"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

"This book was my favorite for the sheer force of its creativity... powerful, funny and deeply strange. You won't read anything else like it."--Ann Patchett's Favorite Books of 2011 on Salon.com

"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
