“Kris D'Agostino has penned a modern, dysfunctional family classic that tears away the melodrama that is found too often in the genre. The story of the Moretti's triumphs and tragedies is written with such a gritty, raw, visceral style, it leaves the reader shaken. Seldom does a book paint such a bleak picture of modern American home life while still, at its core, such a warm and caring heart and soul. Much like Calvin Moretti as the result of his trials and tribulations, this book will change you in ways you never expected.”
-- Matt Falvey, Next Chapter Bookshop, Mequon, WI

Film school dropout Calvin Moretti moves back home, along with his older brother and pregnant younger sister, to a father obsessed with his own mortality and a mother stricken by the imminent loss of their house in this darkly humorous tale of a loopy but loving family.
