Moving, haunting, and at times wickedly funny, Bastards is about finding one's family and oneself.
"With Bastards Mary Anna King has crafted a wise and indispensable meditation on the true nature of family, the dislocations of adoption, and all the vital species of love. She brings light to them all." (Steve Almond, author of Against Football: One Man's Reluctant Manifesto and Bad Poetry)
"An impressive debut.... [Mary Anna King's] prose moves with lyrical wit and cultural texture as she persists with all of her protean self to figure out the nature of family and the deepest human connections amid trauma and confusion." (Peter Balakian, author of Black Dog of Fate)

What an amazing book. Mary is the epitome of love, she writes from her heart (brimming with love for her brother and sisters) I feel sadness for her and her family's experiences and joy when she is reunited with her siblings (babies and children that had been taken from her world) They all went through so much... I wish them all fulfilment and happiness in their lives.
