Everyone with a less-than-perfect family will relate." Po Bronson, author ofBombardiers: A NovelandWhat Should I Do With My Life? "Noah Hawley writes irresistible fiction. I devouredThe Punchin three hours flat, stopping only to marvel over the freshness of a phrase or the effortless wit of a line of dialogue." Mary Roach, author ofStiffandBonk "Like an American Martin Amis, Noah Hawley expertly rides the line between hilarity and horror and deftly mines his characters' secret longings their shame, hope, and desire. At times the story is so exquisitely uncomfortable you'll put your hands over your eyes, but you'll end up peeking between your fingers because it's so wickedly good." Tom Barbash, author ofThe Last Good ChanceandOn Top of the World "Brotherly love never hurt so good"Kirkus Reviews "Hawley sucks you in with his vivid, direct writing. His portrait of a dysfunctional family is at once insane, tender and hilarious."People Magazine: StyleWatch. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0811864294
Riassunto: David believes that at heart, people are inherently rotten. Scott, his brother, believes that his life is going to fall apart, and that everyone he loves will leave him. Doris, their mother, believes that she has nothing to lose by revealing a 60-year-old family secret. This hysterically biting and ultimately redeeming novel by Noah Hawley proves them all right and wrong while answering some of life's biggest questions. Like, how did Scott end up with two wonderful wives simultaneously? And why can't David manage to keep even one dysfunctional relationship going? It all comes down to love and families and what you believe in and, maybe, forgiveness.
L'autore: Noah Hawley is a novelist, screenwriter, and writer for several TV series including Bones. He was raised in New York City, lived in San Francisco, and now resides in Los Angeles.
