What the Family Needed by Steven Amsterdam

"Okay, tell me which do you want: to be able to fly or to be invisible?" And so begins the tale of one particularly gifted family as it finds itself. Following his acclaimed debut, Things We Didn't See Coming, Amsterdam lets each member speak, opening up an intimate wilderness.

From a mystified teenager to an over-tired night nurse to a conflicted exile, he captures their secrets over thirty years, the many voices revealing an uneasy peace. The surprising strengths they each find show them how to change their lives - and what the family needs in order to survive.
