At our retreat this year we will discuss We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, by Karen Joy Fowler. The story introduces the troubled Cooke family. Set at two universities (Indiana and Davis), our protagonist, Rosemary, is the youngest of three siblings, whose father is a psychologist studying human behavior. When he brings his behavioral experiments home, it sets the family up for hilarity and heartbreak. Short-listed for the 2014 Man Booker prize, the NYT has this to say:

"The novel's fresh diction and madcap plot - swapped suitcases, a ventriloquist's dummy, lost bikes and drug-laced coed high jinks - bend the tone toward comedy, but it never mislays its solemn raison d'être. Monkeyshines aside, this is a story of Everyfamily in which loss engraves relationships, truth is a soulful stalker and coming-of-age means facing down the mirror, recognizing the shape-shifting notion of self."
