Family can be a tricky thing, and as someone with a small nuclear family, I’ve always been fascinated by sprawling families. Of course, being a reader, where else can one find a window into lives they’ll never live? Books of course! It goes then that I enjoy reading books about large families, winding generations, and all the dysfunction that can happen in a family.
These 13 books are some of my favourite books about families. I’ve LOVED all but one, which I thought was OK. Whether you’re looking for stories about African families, Middle Eastern families, American families, or Asian(-American) families, there’s a book for you on this list.
