Kotimatkalla surullinen ihmissusi kuitenkin tapaa joukon hirviöasuisia lapsia, jotka kutsuvat hänet mukaansa. I’ve always been obsessed with sibling dynamics and fiction on family dramas, this one really delivers. Photograph: Tony Luong View image in fullscreen Adrienne Brodeur ‘creates an evocative sense of place’ in her novel Little Monsters. She is the undercurrent of and catalyst in this cause-and-effect story, whose death at age 30 left Adam a distracted, single father, and Ken and Abby emotionally on their own to cling to each other in a way that might not have been healthy.

They have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim – and RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST and AWFUL AUNTIE have all won the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. This is a wonderfully written family/sibling saga with the language at times being almost lyrical and poetic. Newly the birth mother of Jonah, Steph wants to connect with the Gardner family, now that a recently revealed secret has come crashing to the fore, but how to best proceed?Adam swore under his breath at an old lady driving forty in the fast lane and raised his arm out the window at a lunatic in a convertible cutting in and out of traffic. Ken, a businessman with political ambitions, is caught in an internet chatroom and forced into couples therapy. Ken Gardner in Chatham contemplates all the money winging its way into his account right now as the deal of a lifetime goes ahead. Little Monsters” is set during the precise cultural moment when it seemed that a woman would soon be ensconced in the White House.

Adam was willing to put money down that soon the presidential choice would be between a boorish billionaire and an unscrupulous woman.

One moment, you’re studying the white-pink sand below; the next, you’re over a blue-black abyss and staring into darkness. This is a layered story of a family teetering on an edge, the threads that bind them stretched to the breaking point. In the pitch-black depths of the Pacific Ocean north of the Galápagos Islands, they’d encountered evidence—in the form of foot-long clams, giant red tube worms, and spiny white crabs—that even in darkness, there was life. As Adam’s thirty-something young adult children prepare for his birthday celebration, they are beginning to spin out in their own life crises. It is summer 2016, and as Adam’s birthday celebration approaches, the family drama unfolds on the cusp of radical change.

Each morning, buzzing, he slung his legs off the bed and sat bolt upright, naked, allowing his male parts to hang over the edge of the mattress, and did his best to capture these jangled dreams, recording what details he could remember in a spiral-bound notebook kept by his bedside. The conservative Ken is a successful real estate developer with political aspirations who “married into an old Boston Brahmin family” and “already had social status and access to money. Set against the backdrop of a very beautiful and familiar area of cape code, all of the characters are relatable, likeable, hateable in their choices. In an effort to ride the wave of clarity and insight that accompany his mania, he self-titrates his medication.This book accompanied on a book tour of my own and I looked forward to the moment I could hop into bed with it each night. The action opens in April 2016, when feminists like Abby Gardner, a quietly ambitious artist, had no idea that, by January, there would be a sudden imperative to knit pink hats and march in the streets. but you need all the characters’ POVs to truly understand who they all are, and what their family is.
