'Funny and charming...tailor-made for summer...magical' New York Times Book Review

'Hilarious, freewheeling' Guardian

'Gloriously imaginative' Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

They were the Amazing Telemachus Family, who in the mid-1970s achieved widespread fame for their magic and mind reading act. That is, until the magic decided to disappear one night, live on national television.

We encounter this long-forgotten family two decades on, when grandson Matty, born long after the public fall from grace, discovers powers in himself and realises his hugely deflated, heavily indebted family truly are amazing.

SPOONBENDERS is the legacy and legend of a dysfunctional, normal, entirely unique family across three generations of big personalities and socially inept recluses - each cursed with the potential of being something special.
