CJ Hauser practically takes you by the hand offers you a comfortable seat and sits beside you to tell this story Written with an intimacy and style that made me feel right at home By the book’s end I felt as if I’d spent time with the characters rather than read words about them Two half siblings travel separately to an island off Florida in an effort to grieve discover what happened to their father and to hopefully heal I really enjoyed this book from start to finish There are some twists and turns which though not necessarily unexpected still result in a highly satisfactory conclusion This reads with flow and change the movement of life The characters may halt what is to be by crushing it before their relationship has a chance to express all that it can become Fresh and open alive with the joys and sorrows of reunion and the potential of the pleasures in coming back together Much like the legend of how the turtle got it’s shell which is an inherent piece of this story A family breaking apart and maybe finding their way towards putting the pieces back together again I’ll definitely be looking for from this writer

Family of OriginEr's first evidence that the future held no hope In the irreverent and exuberant spirit of Kevin Wilson Alissa Nutting and Karen Russell CJ Hauser speaks to a generation's uncertainties Is it possible to live in our broken world with both scientific pragmatism and hope What does one generation owe another How do we know which parts of the past and ourselves to jettison and which to keep Delightfully funny fiercely original high spirited and warm Family of Origin grapples with uestions of nature and nurture evolution and mating intimacy and betrayal progress and forgivene. I hated this and finished it mostly so that I could authoritatively say I hated it Spoilers ahead As many others have said I loved Hauser's essay The Crane Wife in The Paris Review and immediately put this on hold to read The biggest issue for me is that there is a central plot point of sexual abuse that the story is ill euipped to handle and is unsure whether to even recognize as abuse However if the genders were reversed a 20 year old man having sex with a 14 year old girl much less one raised as his sister it would have been obvious and the story wouldn't have been written Additionally there was a repeated continuity error Elsa being less than six years older than Nolan and yet somehow their father left when she was six that grated The prose was beautiful and the ending was strangely moving But I couldn't get beyond the fact that the strangeness of the sibling relationship dares us to think something is wrong from the beginning and yet doesn't fully explore its wrongness I hope Nolan can find a good therapist in this fictional universe
