Read full description of the books:
A fine example of seventies suburban grotesque, despite being set in the sixties and published in the eighties. Funny, stark, emotionally resonant, honest, sometimes surprising. Gowdy has a real grip on how kids/people do their best to normalize what isn't. Even if the kids feel like they're freaks and must keep the family secrets, it's all just the way things are to them, and they take bizarre behaviors in stride, because it's family. Sort of how we all are, of course.
She's very good, I'll read more of her.
