Childhood as performance art

The Family Fang is a funny and strange novel about a performance artist couple who raise their children to paticipate in their "art" and warp them in the process. Japanese author, Haruki Murakami's, new book, 1q84, is an homage to George Orwell's 1984. The Leftovers by Tom Perrota tells the story of the people who must learn to cope after being left behind by the Rapture, but it's more comic than tragic, and less about the book of Revelation than about the human condition. Browse through the list, lots of new books by favorite authors appear there!
