Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Annie and Buster Fang have spent most of their adult lives trying to distance themselves from their famous artist parents, Caleb and Camille. But when a bad economy and a few bad personal decisions converge, the two siblings have nowhere to turn but their family home. Reunited under one roof for the first time in more than a decade and surrounded by the souvenirs of their unusual upbringing, Buster and Annie are forced to confront not only their creatively ambitious parents, but the chaos and confusion of their childhood. Written with tremendous heart, wit, and honesty, Kevin Wilson's The Family Fang is a comedy, a tragedy, and a tour de force....The best single-word description would be genius (Ann Patchett, bestselling author of Bel Canto and State of Wonder ).
