`Great art is difficult' - that's the motto of the Family Fang. What's even more difficult is being raised by great artists. Just ask Buster and Annie, who spent their childhood starring in their parents' madcap performance art pieces. After all, when your art lies in subverting normality, it can be difficult to raise a normal family. Now that Buster and Annie have grown up, the chaos of their childhood has made it a struggle to adjust to life outside the fishbowl of their parents' strange world. But when the lives they've built come crashing down, they have nowhere left to go but home, where their parents plan for one last performance that is to be their magnum opus, whether the kids agree to participate or not. It's their most ambitious project yet, and it brings the Fangs to the difficult decision about what's ultimately more important: their family or their art.

`A comedy, a tragedy, and a tour-de-force examination of what it means to make art and survive your family. I have never seen anything like it before. The best single word description would be brilliant.' Ann Patchett, bestselling author of Bel Canto

`Every time I thought about this book, it made me smile; every time I opened it, it made me laugh. The Family Fang is such a unique work that turning each page feels like unearthing a discovery. This is the kind of novel you fall in love with: tender-hearted, wonder-filled, a world all its own. ' Josh Weil, author of The New Valley
