Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

So brilliantly crafted and flat-out fun to read that she makes jubilant sinners of us all.-- Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

Barbara Gowdy's dark and comic novel about the Canary family was acclaimed in The New York Review of Books as "a wonderfully inventive family romance ... an almost flawless novel". "The novel is a perfectly turned parable", said Katherine Dunn in the Washington Post, "but its characters are multidimensional humans, convincingly drawn by a wry and knowing eye that sees all their frail goofiness and loves them, not despite but because of their flaws".
