The Family Fang
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
reads like a cross between The Addams Family
and Arrested Development
. That it's totally weird, and pretty wonderful. Most of all, that it manages to be brainy without sacrificing heart.
