unusual Hollywood family by Michael Frank, who brings Proustian acuity and razor sharp prose to family dramas as primal, and eccentrically insular, as they come The Atlantic My feeling for Mike is something out of the ordi nary, Michael Frank overhears his aunt telling his mother when he is a boy of eight It s stronger than I am I cannot explain it I love him beyond life itself With this indelible bit of eavesdropping, we fall into the spellbinding world of The Mighty Franks The family is uncommonly close Michael s childless Auntie Hankie and Uncle Irving, glamorous Hollywood screenwriters, are doubly related Hankie is his father s sister, and Irving is his mother s brother The two families live near each other in Laurel Canyon In this strangely intertwined world, even the author s grandmothers who dislike each other share a nearby apartment Strangest of all is the way Auntie Hankie, with her extravagant personality, comes to bend the wider family to her will Talented, mercurial, and lavish with her love, she divides Michael from his parents and his two younger brothers as she takes charge of his education, guiding him to the right books to read Proust, not Zola ,

his eye until that eye begins to see on its own When this son Hankie longs for grows up and begins to turn away from her, her moods darken, and a series of shattering scenes compel Michael to reconstruct both himself and his family narrative as he tries to reconcile the woman he once adored with the troubled figure he discovers her to be In its portrayal of this fascinating, singularly
