"Kevin Allardice harnesses his great powers of description and ingenious sense of narrative for this viciously funny satire, Family Genus Species. Laurence Sterne would have been proud to call Mr. Allardice a descendent." - Michael Kimball, author of Big Ray, Us and Dear Everybody
"With poignant wit, Kevin Allardice draws us into this backyard fairytale and social satire. Vee is a memorable protagonist, quirky and brave and tender. Fast-paced and suspenseful, FAMILY, GENUS, SPECIES is compelling and utterly original." - Vanessa Hua, author of Deceit and Other Possibilities
