Product Overview

""Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." "Tolstoy wasn''t thinking specifically of the Harrison family when he wrote those words, but maybe he should have been. George Harrison is 28 and afraid of the dark. His father is dead and his mother lives in la-la land. Reeling from a broken heart, and still coping with the trauma of a childhood home invasion, George works in a dead-end job in a bowling alley and finds rare solace in the giant painting of an alien that sits outside his room. His brother Matthew isn''t much better off. After losing the love of his life in a traumatic car accident, he''s retreated into a private world of sleep where he dreams about falling in love with comedienne Magda Szubanski. Matthew and George are each stuck in their own little messed-up world, with no idea how to get out, and neither of them is sure whether their unhappy family will ever finally pull together, or simply just fall apart.

Editors Note "'Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.' Tolstoy wasn't thinking specifically of George and Matthew Harrison when he wrote those words, but maybe he should have been. George Harrison is twenty-six, he lives with his brother Matthew, works in a bowling alley and is afraid of the dark. Reeling from a broken heart, still coping with the trauma of a childhood home invasion and boasting a dysfunctional family history to rival 'The Simpsons', he spends his days working in a bowling alley and finds rare solace in the giant painting of an alien that sits outside his room. And his brother Matthew is not much better off; he has his own demons to deal with. He recently lost the love of his life in a car accident (one that he was lucky to survive himself), and he finds his solace in constant sleep - and dreams of Magda."--Provided by publisher.
