The Family Fang
The Family Fang - Kevin Wilson Family trees can be a bitch. Just ask Annie and Buster Fang (Child A and B). Their parents are hardcore, snobbish performance artists, who have allowed/forced their offspring into their pieces of art. Annie and Buster look down their noses at this — their parents call it art, they call it mischief, and though they try very hard, they are drawn back into the family fold, in spite of themselves. The scenarios that Wilson puts these characters into are just hilarious (Buster, for example, as a journalist, gets half his face shot off by an adult-sized potato gun), and you'll find yourself laughing out loud frequently. The ending is a very bittersweet remedy, where art meets familial frictions. A great read.
