Reunited for a funeral and leery of one another, a family compares splintered memories. Will bathes his grandmother. Mel gives her wig a haircut. Norman is not prepared to take over his father’s club. Jesse has never known how old he is. They each cope with limited options and murky desires. An irreducible collage, as intuitive as it is formal, The Karaoke Singer’s Guide to Self-Defense drifts between story lines and perspectives. Long bus rides through a post-industrial Gothic Midwest, Classic Rock, and compulsive brawls hum a requiem for the late night life of Stone Claw Grove.

Praise for The Karaoke Singer’s Guide to Self-Defense

Shit-your-pants brilliant
NewCity
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this might just be one of the best novels of the year. I compared this book to The Corrections, but this family lives on the other side of the tracks to Jonathan Franzen’s dysfunctional family and would have beaten the shit out of The Corrections kids when they were in school.
