Perfect Little World
Perfect Little World is an unforgettable exploration of what it means to be family from New York Times bestselling author, Kevin Wilson.
Aren't the best families the ones we make for ourselves?
Isabelle Pool is fresh out of high school, pregnant with her art teacher's baby, and totally on her own. Izzy knows she can be a good mother but without any money or family to fall back on, she's left searching.
So when she's offered a space in The Infinite Family Project - a utopian ideal funded by an eccentric billionaire - she accepts. Isabelle joins nine other couples, all with children the same age as her newborn son, to raise their children as one extended family in a spacious, secluded compound in Tennessee. But can this experiment really work - or is their 'perfect little world' destined to go horribly wrong?
Like an animated Edward Gorey cartoon, with a more realistic contemporary setting and a warmer, lighter touch ... Wilson pulls off his sweet-and-tart tone with a soupcon of unexpected spice.
The author of The Family Fang invents another unusual family structure for his sweet and thoroughly satisfying second novel…
The sheer energy of imagination in Wilson’s work makes other writers of realistic fiction look lazy.
