Staff Reviews


I have a very meta love of books about books and The Weird Sisters is very much about that love. It follows three complex (and often at odds) sisters who come home to care for their ailing mother. Told in first person plural narrative you feel instantly a part of their story.

Fall '12 Reading Group List


“The sisters in this funny and touching book are not 'weird' in the modern sense of the word; the title refers to the three witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth. Headed by a father who was a professor of Shakespeare and his loving wife, the Andreas family was certainly unusual, and the three daughters grew up speaking in couplets, quoting Hamlet, and reading constantly. When their mother develops breast cancer, all three sisters return to their Midwestern home to aid in her care -- and end up caring for each other as well. This is a wonderful tribute to literature, the bonds of sisterhood, and the importance of family.”
