9780007441419: Born Weird

A family drama unlike any other from the internationally acclaimed author of All My Friends are Superheroes.

The Weirds have always been a little peculiar, but not one of them suspected that they’d been cursed by their grandmother.

At the moment of their birth Annie Weird gave each of her five grandchildren a special power that she thought was a blessing. Richard, the oldest, always keeps safe; Abba always has hope; Lucy is never lost and Kent can beat anyone in a fight. As for Angie, she always forgives, instantly. But over the years these blessings have proved to be curses and ruined their lives.

Now Annie is dying and she has one last task for Angie, her favourite grandchild. Angie has to gather her far-flung brothers and sisters and assemble them in her Grandmother’s hospital room so that at the moment of her death, she can lift these blessings turned curses.

Review:

'I gobbled it up in two days. I absolutely loved it. Another fantastic premise, brilliant characters, witty dialogue, it was just so so good and I am once again jealous that I didn't come up with the idea. As soon as I finished it I missed the characters so I hope he hurries up and writes another one quickly.' CECELIA AHERN

‘If you enjoy Wes Anderson films you’ll find a character to love here.’ EMERALD STREET

‘Touching, witty, and with downright addictive prose.’ HELLO

‘Wild, wacky, wonderful.’ THE GLOBE & MAIL

‘Kaufman has the enviable ability to zing his writing with humor. I often found myself laughing aloud at the Weirds’ fractured reality and the silliness that ensues.’ THE STAR

‘As a novelist he has set a certain unique course for himself, created a certain unique domain.’ NATIONAL POST

‘Wonderfully weird’ SAINSBURYS MAGAZINE
