Product Description:

Title: Lonely Polygamist <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Brady Udall <>Publisher: VINTAGE

Review:

"Udall demonstrates a wonderful ability to move the reader one way or the other. He is a brilliant comic writer, and this novel is full of laugh-out-loud moments and running jokes. But he is equally adept at heartbreaking tragedy. Combining the two superbly here, he has recreated the terrible wonder and wonderful terror of family life, in a novel that's not larger than life, but just as large, as difficult, as funny and as poignant as everyday life itself" (Doug Johnstone Sunday Herald)

"It's funny, but not simply a comic noel; Udall has some wonderful observations about the dynamics of family life" ( The Times)

"An exceptional tale of an exceptional family." ( The New York Times)

"A dark, funny and insightful probe into the ways we can be lonely even when surrounded" ( Sunday Telegraph, Australia)

"Memorable... Shining above all in this joyful celebration of communal living is Rusty, the misfit whose explosive fate will have profound effects on the whole, enormous family." (Ross Gilfillan Daily Mail)
