The Family Fang

by Kevin Wilson

This captivating novel tells the story of the daughter and son of avant-garde artists couple who, as children, were used as props in their parents performance art pieces; now adults, the children must come to terms with their odd upbringing. A celebrated Southern writer, Kevin Wilson probes questions about the true nature of art, the obligations of parents, and the nature of family loyalty.
