Decades later the Telemachuses are not so amazing. Irene is a single mom whose ear for truth makes it hard to hold down a job, much less hold together a relationship. Frankie's in serious debt to his dad's old mob associates. Buddy has completely withdrawn into himself and inexplicably begun digging a hole in the backyard. To make matters worse, the CIA has come knocking, looking to see if there's any magic left in the Telemachus clan. And there is: Irene's son Matty has just had his first out-of-body experience. But he hasn't told anyone, even though his newfound talent might just be what his family needs to save themselves - if it doesn't tear them apart in the process.
Harnessing the imaginative powers that have made him a master storyteller, Daryl Gregory delivers a stunning, laugh-out-loud new novel about a family of gifted dreamers and the invisible forces that bind us all.

Just the Right Amount of Everything!
What made the experience of listening to Spoonbenders the most enjoyable?
Spoonbenders is a great, silly, feel good book. As someone who listens to a lot crime and suspense novels it's nice to take a break and laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Have you listened to any of Ari Fliakos’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I first heard Ari Fliako's narration in The Nix. He is was one of the reasons why I purchased this book. I like Ari because he's not over dramatic like some narrators. Ari Fliakos is one of my favorites.
Any additional comments?
This is a great summer read/listen!

Shades of Koontz
I found this in humor. No real smiles (no laughs), but a light-hearted story. Nice use of flashbacks to develop characters. The narrator did a good job of creating separate voices for the characters. The supernatural element and easy style are reminiscent of Dean Koontz. I especially appreciate the untold secret, kept 'til the end (and beyond).
