In The Lonely Polygamist (W.W. Norton & Co, 2010), author Brady Udall pulls off an unlikely feat: he makes a family of one man, four wives, and 28 children seem normal and engaging, because they are beset by the trivial and epic successes and tragedies of most of our lives. The story of Golden Richards and his brood is by turns raucously funny and darkly heartbreaking, completely engrossing as well as sumptuously entertaining. A very well-written novel by one of our finest contemporary authors.
