*Winner of the PEN American/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Special Citation*

“Family Night is a wild book, a savage sexual roller coaster, whose ultimate destination is a quirky juncture of memory and desire, a place where the pull of family and the pull of the erotic blur together. A powerful work, exquisitely written, it captures the dark, muddy world or the carnal unconscious as well as any novel I’ve read.”
—Robert Boswell, author of Crooked Hearts
“Family Night, Maria Flook’s debut as a novelist, reminds me of another notable debut, Knife in the Water, Roman Polanski’s first film. In both, one feels the immediate recognition of a unique sensibility; in both, the vision is mature, taut, edgy—and both are kept on the edge by an unremitting, underlying erotic current.”
—Stuart Dybek, author of The Coast of Chicago
“Maria Flook’s novel goes straight to the broken heart of an American family, where its wild children take shelter in each other. This is a book of desperate moves, by a writer gifted with a fierce wit and an amazingly sweet sensuality.”
—Judith Grossman, author of Her Own Terms
