All in the Family

A family wrestles with the decision of whether or not to have a child in Peter Ho Davies’s A Lie Someone Told You About Yourself. In Brandon Hobson’s The Removed, a fractured family mourns the killing of their teenage son as their annual family bonfire approaches. Two mothers reckon with their marriage and their relationship with their troubled son in With Teeth by Kristen Arnett. These authors discuss how threads of joy, tragedy, and family conflict are woven into their latest novels. Moderated by Kendall Storey, senior editor at Catapult and Soft Skull Press.
