Foyles Notes

'The strength of this book is in its characters. Each one feels carefully sculpted with details and characteristics that bring them to life and make them relatable.' Read more of Magda's review of Spoonbenders on our blog.

Synopsis

The BBC Radio 2 Book Club choice Bought for TV by Paramount '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.
