The Family Fang

Kevin Wilson

Caleb and Camille Fang have dedicated their lives to making great art. But for their children, Annie and Buster, who have been unwillingly involved in their parents’ crazy performances for as long as they can remember, their ‘art’ is an embarrassment.

As soon as the children grow up they flee home, desperate to escape the chaos of their parents’ world. But when the lives they’ve built come crashing down, brother and sister have no choice but to go back. And whether the kids agree to participate or not, Caleb and Camille are planning one last performance that will finally determine what’s more important: their family or their art.

The Family Fang is an utterly unique, moving and hilarious novel about one of life’s greatest mysteries: the relationship between parents and their children.
