"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Family Fang


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Family Fang
By Kevin Wilson
Publication Date: August 9

From the author's website:


Performance artists Caleb and Camille Fang dedicated themselves to making great art. But when an artist’s work lies in subverting normality, it can be difficult to raise well-adjusted children. Just ask Buster and Annie Fang. For as along as they can remember, they starred (unwillingly) in their parents’ madcap pieces. But now that they are grown up, the chaos of their childhood has made it difficult to cope with life outside the fishbowl of their parents’ strange world.

When the lives they’ve built come crashing down, brother and sister have nowhere to go but home, where they discover that Caleb and Camille are planning one last performance—their magnum opus—whether the kids agree to participate or not. 


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Wow! (Literally, lool.) What an origiaal plot! I don't have I've ever heard of anything remotely like this before. Must be hirlarious reading! Then again, maybe it'll turn out to be a bittersweet kind of novel....Gotta check it out, regardless!

Thanks for sharing!

(BTW, my blog name has changed. It was "Twilight and Other Dreams". Now it's "A Night's Dream of Books". I figured people would assume my blog was some sort of a Twilight fan site, which it's not. I just happen to LOVE the series, so I did highlight it on my blog, to a certain extent.)

Maria Behar said...
