Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[Hawley’s] portrait of a dysfunctional family is at once insane, tender, and hilarious.” People
“The messy realities of life and death intrude on a family’s deeply held rationalizations. Hawley creates an unsettling, caustically funny portrait of contradictory siblings at odds with themselves, their lovers, and their wildly dysfunctional relatives…The fractured appeal of these rival siblings runs as deep as their angst. Brotherly love never hurt so good.” Kirkus Reviews
