Family of Origin is a meditation on a singularly unique family that opens up to embrace all of us, every single family, every human being, and it doesn’t let go. It’s amazing…a supremely weird novel that displays humor and heartbreak in equal measure.”
Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang

“CJ Hauser’s Family of Origin is strange in that way raw honesty often is. It is sharp in its prose and in how it can so cleanly make you feel pierced through. Hauser lures us to an island and from there we learn of family and loss and the nature of our essential humanity. Funny and unforgettable.”
—Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah
, author of Friday Black

“Hauser impresses with her wistful contemporary tale of family bonds and misplaced pessimism…This shimmering take on grief and family will enthrall fans of character-driven stories with its bevy of dashed dreams and cluttered emotions.”
—Publishers Weekly
