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

"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

"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 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

"Inventive and hilarious. This is complex psychological ground, and the 32-year-old Mr. Wilson navigates it with a calm experience that his tender age shouldn't allow."--Wall Street Journal

"[Wilson] has created a memorable shorthand for describing parent-child deceptions and for ways in which creative art and destructive behavior intersect. But he never generalizes.... Whenever this book refers to "a Fang thing," Mr. Wilson is utterly clear about what that means."--Janet Maslin, New York Times

"Wilson, who drew comparisons to Shirley Jackson with his 2009 story collection Tunneling to the Center of the Earth, brilliantly and hilariously explores the "art for art's sake" argument."--Fiction Chronicle, New York Times

"Funny and fast-paced, Kevin Wilson's debut brims with just-so observations about the anxiety of influence, parental and artistic."--Financial Times
