All Families are Psychotic Summary


All Families are Psychotic by Douglas Coupland

On the eve of the next Space Shuttle mission, a divided family comes together...Warm, witty and wise, `All Families Are Psychotic' is Coupland at the very top of his form.

In a cheap motel an hour from Cape Canaveral, Janet Drummond takes her medication, and does a rapid tally of the whereabouts of her children. Wade has spent the night in jail; suicidal Bryan is due to arrive at any moment with his vowel-free girlfriend, Shw; and then there is Sarah, `a bolt of lightning frozen in midflash' - here in Orlando to be the star of Friday's shuttle mission. With Janet's ex-husband and his trophy wife also in town, Janet spends a moment contemplating her family, and where it all went wrong. Or did it?

All Families are Psychotic Reviews


`Heartbreakingly bitter-sweet...This book will make you want to phone your own psychotic family and tell them how much you love them.' Daily Telegraph

`Miraculous...has you laughing, thinking and crying all at once.' Evening Standard

`As funny as The Simpsons...The dialogue fizzes and snarls with brilliant one-liners. By the end of this energetic yet philosophical novel you will be cheering on its hapless rabble of outcasts, for Coupland's coup de theatre is to entice you to suffer this family as if it were your own.' The Times

`Irresistibly hilarious, unique and wonderful.' Independent on Sunday
