Meet Henry Pendergast, the lovable ten-year-old boy doing his best to survive four consecutive holidays in this bittersweet coming-of-age novel.
This first volume in the Normal Family Trilogy introduces us to the crazy cast of characters, each one an obstacle to Henry's core desire to live a normal life. His life is anything but normal and slowly disintegrates with each passing holiday as he does his best to understand the chaos around him. Set against the turmoil of 1968 America, the novel is at turns funny and sad, written in an engaging tone that will pull you in from the first page.
This is the first book in the trilogy. Normal Family covers youth; No One Ran to the Altar covers adulthood, and All The Lies We Live covers old age. Across the sweep of the trilogy we are introduced to many memorable characters, including Henry's self-destructive mother, genius older brother, explorer/author grandfather, and sister Lucy, who perseveres in the end against great odds.
Featuring moments of tenderness surrounded by hilarity, Normal Family is the perfect read for the holidays or any other time when a good laugh is needed. No One Ran to the Altar, Volume Two
