"The Family Fang" is a comedy, a tragedy, and a tour-de-force examination of what it means to make art and survive your family. Like everything else Kevin Wilson does, I have never seen anything like it before. The best single word description would be brilliant.--Ann Patchett, bestselling author of "Bel Canto."
Annotation:
Having spent a lifetime as the centerpieces of their parents' conceptual art projects, Annie and Buster Fang are a sister and brother poorly equipped for life as adults outside exhibition spaces. The sibling's failures to adjust lead them slouching back into the unorthodox care of their mother and father for one final avant-garde experiment. Detailing the humiliations of childhood as pawns in Camille and Caleb's art games, THE FAMILY FANG explores how odd the grown-up world can look from even the most outrageous vantage point.

Praise

"Wilson...brilliantly and hilariously explores the 'art for art's sake' argument...." - Cameron Martin 08/21/2011
