Following the death of her worthy liberal parents, Corlis McCrea moves back into her familys grand Reconstruction mansion in North Carolina, willed to all three siblings. Her timid younger brother has never left home. When her bullying black-sheep older brother moves into his house as well, its war. Each heir wants the house. Yet to buy the other out, two siblings must team against one. Just as in girlhood, Corlis is torn between allying with the decent but fearful youngest and the iconoclastic eldest, who covets his legacy to destroy it. A Perfectly Good Family is a stunning examination of inheritance, literal and psychological: what we take from our parents, what we discard, and what we are stuck with, like it or not --P.

Annotation:
Lionel Shriver shows a deft and dark knowledge of the cruelties and power-struggles of family life in her unforgettable novel A PERFECTLY GOOD FAMILY. After the death of her parents, Corlis McCrea returns to her North Carolina home, and begins a sometimes delicate, sometimes savage battle with her two brothers--one passive and fearful, the other driven and destructive--for control of the family mansion. The psychology is brilliantly contemporary, but the drama is pure KING LEAR--a devastating book.
