Kevin Wilson 

When: Thu., Feb. 9, 7 p.m. 2017

Six years ago, Kevin Wilson received rave reviews from the likes of Time magazine for his debut novel, The Family Fang, a darkly humorous tale that focused on two children making sense of their strange childhood as participants in their parents' performance art. Wilson based the book on his own experience of being raised by parents who willfully isolated their children from the outside world. Wilson's new novel is also concerned with family, but not the kind you're born into. Central is the plight of Isabelle, a pregnant woman in desperate straits who finds safe harbor with the experimental Infinite Family Project. Funded by a rich weirdo and run by an odd but alluring psychiatrist named Preston Grind, the enterprise is devoted to creating the perfect little world of the book's title, via some creative tweaking of the typical familial structure. But if you've read about utopias, you'll know that they rarely turn out as planned. —David Klein
