9780099565932: What the Family Needed

'Okay, tell me which do you want: to be able to fly or to be invisible?'

This question leads to thirty years of discoveries, extraordinary strengths and closely guarded secrets.

'To tell you the narrative concens a family whose members have superpowers is only to graze the surface of a moving and beautifully realised meditation on what it is to be an ordinary human being'

Australian
