What the Family Needed

(2012)
A novel by

 
'Okay, tell me which do you want: to be able to fly or to be invisible?'

This question leads to thirty years of discoveries, extraordinary strengths and closely guarded secrets.

'To tell you the narrative concens a family whose members have superpowers is only to graze the surface of a moving and beautifully realised meditation on what it is to be an ordinary human being'
Australian

'A wonderful novel: imaginative, intelligent, empathetic... Like a cross between The Corrections and The Slap'
Sydney Morning Herald
