By Kevin Wilson,Silvia Castoldi

Come definire los angeles famiglia Fang? Una famiglia costituitasi negli anni Settanta che ha fatto della propria vita un’opera d’arte: Caleb e Camille, i genitori, non concepiscono azione che non sia artistica. I poveri figli, chiamati Bambino A (Annie) e Bambino B (Buster), sono vissuti dai genitori come un’appendice artistica, un ulteriore braccio capace di mettere in atto i loro deliranti e pazzeschi progetti artistici.
Annie e Buster da adulti saranno due individui psicologicamente devastati: lei è diventata una nota attrice, ma beve, e lui invece è un giornalista dalle alterne vicende, che vive in solitudine. l. a. famiglia Fang è il crudele ma avvincente ritratto di una coppia tanto squilibrata ed egoista da rasentare l. a. totale distruzione dei figli, ed è un romanzo dedicato alla riflessione sul concetto di arte, sia essa scrittura, pittura, recitazione o “gesto artistico”.
Kevin Wilson affronta un tema drammatico attraverso il filtro della comicità, sempre in bilico tra cinismo e ironia, che riesce a rendere lievi anche i passi più duri.
