One seemingly normal family grapples with deep wounds in today’s family spotlight.
THE FAMILY CLAUSE by Jonas Hassen Khemiri
“Khemiri succeeds at creating an infectious sense of melancholia as the poisonous patriarch is forced to reckon with the truth. In a slow build of quotidian moments, Khemiri constructs a familiarly flawed universe that lays bare what it means to be human.”–Publishers Weekly
“Depicting his characters’ perceptions of one another, and themselves, Khemiri points to universal truths: in this and any family, roles change over time, and, with any luck, so do the people in them.”–Booklist
