    [synopsis] => -The debut novel from an exciting young poet-novelist, Rebecca Gisler, translated by Jordan Stump, who has also translated Marie NDiaye, Marie Redonnet, Scholastique Mukasonga, and others. (Kleeman reads everything tr. by Stump)-A pandemic novel-or not? Gisler's world is recognizable but never overbearing. The gently surreal setting, inhabited by strange family members and lots of clutter, recalls recent world events while making them interesting and new again.-French critics have said that About Uncle is "a tasty and strangely sweet ode to the wobbly and fragile"; "a lucid novel on disability and family ties"; "a monstrous little novel for a monstrous little man."-It is a tense novel for tense times, one that harbors no ill will for others, instead finding them frustrating, fascinating, disgusting, and ultimately lovable.-This book feels like an indie favorite with breakout appeal, similar to Sayaka Murata's Convenience Store Woman and Olga Ravn's The Employess.-RIYL: Ottessa Mosfegh, Katherine Dunn, Alexandra Kleeman, Marie NDiaye-Joint publication with Peireine Press in the UK
