About this title


This surrealistic Black comedy centers around a household in the town of Far Cry, whose members include Jack, a confused teenager; La Donna, Jack's sexy, brilliant, Einstein-adoring sister; and Jade, his sensous, exotic-looking mother

From Library Journal:

This work is meant to be a coming-of-age story about Jack, a shiftless young man in a very odd family. Its members include his seductive sister LaDonna, a brilliant would-be scientist; his mother, a perpetually dissatisfied woman who destroys the men who fall under her spell; and the men themselves, a mostly pitiful lot. What begins as a truly humorous story about an interesting family is eventually spoiled by the author's self-indulgent whining. Jack's unsuccessful attempts at a life on his own and his ultimate return home and supposed maturity at the book's end are simply not as interesting as the family dynamics. The irreverent style will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Tom Robbins, Kurt Vonnegut, and the like, but sadly DeMarinis neglects to tell a story. Susan Avallone, "Library Journal"
