The Big Book of Misunderstanding


An entire family comes-of-age simultaneously in this tender, funny novel.

Quirky 22-year-old narrator Joshua Royalton recounts the elaborate tales, theories and neuroses he developed to cope with family life, including a fictional history of Chinese restaurant decor, a severe case of crow-phobia, an obsession with Carly Simon, and an extreme aversion to jigsaw puzzles.

The Big Book of Misunderstanding is a comic celebration of people who insist on figuring out how to love each other despite their differences—and despite the indelible similarities they sometimes wish they didn’t share.
